Ghost Tours of West Chester



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.

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.

Tours are every Friday and Saturday night in October. They begin at 8:00 pm and doors open at 7:00 pm rain or shine. Enjoy a casual dinner is the Courtyard; call for information. Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather.
