From the Powhatan Confederacy to present-day grisly murders. Listen to honest accounts from a professional US Ghost Adventures guide of the events that shaped this River City and led to the very real Richmond Ghosts. Take a tour of the darker side of Richmond and visit the most haunted sites around the Shockoe Bottom area, depending on whether you choose to upgrade to an extended tour. Hear of the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe, said to haunt the staircase that was once in his house, and the chilling tales surrounding Lumpkin's Slave Jail and the historic Masonic Lodge and the ghosts said to linger there, along with many other terrifying tales. Learn about the lesser-known history and the hauntings that often accompany it. You're guaranteed to be creeped out, but you'll still be able to sleep.

My only complaint would be that the meeting location is not clear in the information provided. This resulted in our group arriving late. I would recommend contacting the company before hand to clarify exact address. Other than that one hiccup, the tour itself was absolutely amazing, and our guide, Tim, was wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed learning about some of the gruesome history of Richmond. It was just eerie enough to have us all on edge, but not so much that my twelve year old couldn’t enjoy it. In fact, she enjoyed it so much, that she could not stop talking about it! I would highly recommend this tour. It was a fun and exciting way to learn about some of the rich history of Richmond.
