Make your way downtown, but only if you dare.
For a ghost tour so spooky, you might just shiver in terror.
Come one, come all, bring the kiddos, come as friends And whether you believe in things haunted, well that just depends…
Take caution, keep your eyes peeled, listen closely – you’ll learn something too But heed this warning - ask yourselves:
Are you prepared for what Haunted Historic Evansville has in store for YOU?
Riverside Historic District Tour
Clop, clop, clop, clop, clop.
A horse-drawn carriage clamors over the brick-paved road beneath your feet; the vibration reverberates through your bones; the wind softly lifting your hair as it disappears into the darkness.
Pale moonlight illuminates monstrous, beautiful mansions blanketed by a clear black sky. Still, each one as ominous a haunted house; with walls that echo stories of history, mystery and even tragedy.
The Riverside Historic District Tour will take you back in time to places like the Reitz family home with spirit appearances by Annie Fellows Johnston, Major Albert Rozencranz and more.
This walking tour will regale the district’s history, architecture, prominent residents and even ghost stories and spooky sightings.
Tour begins at the First Presbyterian Church and lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Family-friendly. Comfortable walking shoes, open-imaginations and handholding (if deemed necessary) is encouraged.
