Ghost Tour and Downtown Walking Tour
Check back for information about 2013 events.
Saturday, October 27, 2012 (6-8pm)
Does Mesa have tunnels?
What floats down the stairs in the old territorial jail cells? Where do chairs roll and doors slam? Can you hear whispers in the dark?
Don’t miss this once-a-year tour of downtown Mesa’s historical sites paired with tales of ghosts and goblins. Go above, below (and beyond!) Main Street and hear firsthand accounts of things that go bump in the night from Mesa business owners. The tour will feature actual accounts of paranormal happenings in some of Mesa’s oldest buildings and share the incredible history of the past helping explain Mesa’s present-day hauntings.
All proceeds benefit the Mesa Historical Museum. Visitors for the tour should wear appropriate walking shoes, as the tour will last approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours. The tour will take visitors inside a variety of historic downtown Mesa buildings, and tour guides will share the history and spooky stories of those buildings. Tickets are also available by phoning 480-835-2286. Tickets are $15. Physical tickets will not be mailed. Please be sure the name on your order is whoever will check your party in when you arrive.
Meet in front of the Arizona Museum of Natural History at 53 N MacDonald, one block north of Main St. Parking is located on the street or in the garage behind the museum. Wear comfortable shoes. Please no children in strollers. Not recommended for young children. Rain or shine. Ticket purchases are non-refundable. For more fun, check out the Paranormal Investigation at the museum on Saturday, 10/13 or Buckhorn Baths on 10/20.
