Among the historic streets, manicured gardens and Victorian row houses of DC’s finest neighborhood lie deep, dark secrets about a forgotten past. Come along to hear about the ghosts and spirits that still haunt these streets…if you dare. Stories of eerie coincidences, curses and scenes from the scariest movies. We’ll share the darker side of the history of this pre-revolutionary town on our Ghosts of Georgetown Tour.
Check our our Guide to Visiting Georgetown for directions, restaurant recommendations and self guided tour options.
Is the Ghosts of Georgetown Tour family friendly? Yes! We share with you stories of curses, eerie coincidences, and of course a few haunted houses. We aren’t ghost hunters, we’re historians – so we’ll be taking you through the darker side of Georgetown, but we do not have any one jump out at you! More humor than screams, this is fun for all ages!
We also offer a weekly tour of the ghostly stories surrounding the White House!
Our own tour guide Canden has published a book on the wicked side of Georgetown history! Wicked Georgetown: Scoundrels, Sinners and Spies released by The History Press in Spring 2013.
