Hampton Horror Tours

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Stories and figures from the city’s dark side come to life for the season of spooks and frights as the Hampton History Museum presents their popular “Hampton Horror Tours.” Leaving from the museum lobby, these 60-minute walking tours will include eerie tales of old Hampton and the Coastal Virginia region. Those who dare brave the journey will meet the first witch recorded in America, ghosts of Civil War Soldiers, pirates from Blackbeard’s crew, and the great American author best-known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Edgar Allen Poe, WWII German submariners who perished in the Chesapeake Bay and were buried in Hampton, Declaration of Independence signatory George Wythe, Spanish flu victims, roaring 20s gangsters, and other personages from the city’s storied past. Each tour will include the grisly side of Hampton history, special surprises, a spooky lantern tour of the St. John’s graveyard, and other chilling downtown Hampton sites along Queens Way.
