Georgetown's Haunted History Tour
Georgetown is Haunted With History!
Take a unique look into Seattle's haunted historic past with the 7th Annual Georgetown Haunted History Tour. This one-of-a-kind evening walking tour and theatrical event is presented by the Friends of Georgetown History and Theatre Off Jackson. Tours will start at 6:30pm, with five tours nightly, October 21st and 22nd, departing from Old Georgetown City Hall, 6200 13th Ave S in Seattle, WA.
Tour guides lead you through the dark, foggy alleys of the neighborhood of Georgetown, telling haunted and historic tales from the area once known as the "cesspool of Seattle." Throughout the walk, learn of the period in which Seattle was still a very young city and Georgetown was the playground for the rich and poor. Hear tales of gambling, booze, temperance and the roles they played in many of stories of well-known Seattle ghosts. The entire tour is comprised of local actors and/or historians who are already enchanted with the lure of Seattle's oldest neighborhood's history.
Costumes and good walking shoes are encouraged, as well as weather appropriate clothing. The tour goes on through rain, sleet, or windstorm! On both evenings of the tour, a post-tour reception will commence at The Stables, located at 980 S Nebraska St, starting at 7:30pm. Even if you can't get tickets for the tour, as it sells out quickly, the public is invited to attend the reception for only $5.
