Ghost Tours of West Chester


The Ghost Tours of West Chester is the popular walking tour with tales of ghosts, folklore and history. Your guide, dressed as a gentleman from the 1850's, will lead you on a 90-minute walk through the spooky lanes of downtown neighborhoods where you will explore the place of the shadow people, learn of lost souls of the underground railroad, and stand where the gallows once stood and murderers were hanged. New stories of phantoms, apparitions and witches are added. This event is perfect for the entire family.

The Ghost Tours of West Chester start at The Lincoln Room, 28 West Market Street at Wilmont Mews. It is located in one of West Chester's most historic buildings, dating from 1833. The room retains its original molded tin ceiling and bead board walls. Abraham Lincoln had his first biography written there. It is said to be haunted by the ghost of a horse thief hanged across the street. . .
