Visit the Most Haunted Places in Richmond

Richmond is a great place to visit during the day. The Poe Museum, the Craig House, and St. John’s Episcopal Church are all fine destinations. Richmond Ghosts will give you a glimpse behind the curtain of everyday life. After you hear these stories, you will marvel at the bloodcurdling tales hidden in plain sight.

Our tours are a welcome change of pace from the perfectly acceptable, more conventional attractions of Richmond. You’ll leave your tour with a host of truly memorable and scary stories to thrill your friends back home. We’ll also sneak in a better understanding of Richmond’s most prominent buildings and figures and how they impacted American history.

C&O Church Hill Tunnel North

Beneath Richmond’s Church Hill district sits an abandoned tunnel built in 1873. Before construction was complete, ten men died in cave-ins. So, it is no surprise that on October 2nd, 1925, the entire tunnel collapsed on a work train. Several workers died, and rescuers only ever recovered one body. The city has since sealed the tunnel to prevent anyone from going in – or coming out.

 

 

Edgar Allan Poe Museum

Richmon was Edgar Allan Poe’s adopted city. This museum honors the mastermind of horror and houses many pieces of furniture belonging to Poe. Some say he still reclines on his favorite sofa after visitors head home. Perhaps he is there to admire the collection of his earthly belongings. Since 1922, this museum has been a Mecca for enthusiasts of horror, mystery, and fear.

Mason’s House

Located in the historic Shockoe Bottom district, the Mason’s House was built back in 1785. Often heard is the rattling of keys belonging to the original caretaker. Nearly all of this nation’s Founding Fathers were Freemasons. Who knows what rituals they performed as a part of this secret society? These are the stories you won’t find in history books.

Why You Should Book Your Richmond Ghost Tour Tonight!

Reasons

Most visitors to Richmond have their typical list of “must-see” sites: the Virginia State Capitol Building, the Museum of Fine Arts, or Maymont, to name a few. But don’t you want to learn about a darker, more hidden, yet equally as important side of Richmond’s history? Join Richmond Ghosts and immerse yourself in the haunted legends that have been passed down to locals for generations. While some history books might skip over the city’s macabre past, learning these terrifying tales is crucial to gaining an understanding of Richmond’s culture. Visit popular spots such as the C&O Church Hill Tunnel, the site of one of Richmond’s biggest tragedies. At least nine men were killed during the construction of the tunnel…meaning it’s a particularly active site for chilling, otherworldly encounters with these troubled spirits.

Reasons

The city of Richmond played a key role in the American Civil War, and if you’re visiting, odds are you’ve learned more than your fair share about this side of the city’s history. If you’re looking to expand your knowledge of what really lies between every darkened corner of this historic town’s streets, look no further than an authentic, curated tour with Richmond Ghosts. Learn something new, and expand your conventional knowledge of this capital city’s morbid past.

Reasons

Curious about what lies beyond the grave? Even skeptics are bound to get goosebumps with a tour from Richmond Ghosts. Visit the real-life locations behind hair-raising stories such as that of the Richmond Vampire, who locals claim is buried in — and haunts — the mausoleum of W. W. Pool in Hollywood Cemetery to this day. Even the most adamant of non-believers won’t be able to deny the sense of dread, horror, and misery that plagues this historic town. If there’s one place that will convince you that ghosts are, in fact, very real, look no further than Richmond.

Reasons

Richmond isn’t exactly known to be a late-night town. But a certain group of Richmond’s residents is especially active after the sun goes down: its ghoulish ghosts and otherworldly spirits. Stop by the infamous Rosie Connelly’s Pub, and learn about the haunted drinking establishment where brothel-goers, youth, and many visitors used to sip whiskey back in the early 1900s. For years, workers have reported feeling ghostly hands trying to work in the kitchen, while others have reported seeing a mysterious, full-body apparition of an unknown man, who, without any explanation, would appear in the kitchen before vanishing.
