Walking tours through the dark and fascinating history of the city from the very beginning, and covering a wide variety of tales and lore.
Hotels and Brothels, Libraries and Theaters, Cemeteries and the Sloss Furnace...Birmingham is full of the the Quick and the Dead. Come hear their stories and perhaps catch a glimpse of existence beyond the veil....
It seems as though we aren't the only ones missing our guests. Last week, one of our caretakers was locking up and saying goodbye to the house after her final shift. She wanted to remember the farewell walkthrough, so she waited for everyone to leave, and recorded it.

ranker.com For the paranormally minded, there’s nothing better than a haunted hotel. Sure, a 5-star resort or an apartment rented from an app are all well and good, but they don’t come with the same gruesome amenities as a haunted hotel room. Screams coming from down the hall, inexplicable cold spots in...
We are consulting the spirits...and even THEY have no idea when we will be able to resume tours!
