Haunted History Tour

What might make a city haunted?

While Columbus has a rich and vibrant history, SkyLineNight2there is also a dark side to our past. In this 2-hour, walking tour, we’ll visit a number of fantastic locations through the Short North, Arena District, and Downtown. Each location has its own tale and experience. From a cold winter murder to a hot prison fire to secret tunnels under the city, Columbus is full of haunted tales. All in all, we’ll attempt to answer the question, “what might make a city haunted?”

This is not a ghost hunting tour, but is a chance to explore Columbus’ haunted past. We’ll have a great time walking and sharing stories. Join me on one of the listed dates or contact me for a customized, private tour. Those who are 21 might enjoy grabbing a drink at some of the oldest and most haunted bars in the city. Those under 21 can still enjoy the experience, just contact me for details.

Join me…if you dare!


Thank you for your interest in ShowMeColumbus Tours!

For the safety of our guides and guests, we have made the tough decision to hold off on providing tours at this time. Many of the places we visit are either closed or at reduced capacity and space is at a premium. While we would love to further help you explore, discover, and connect with this great city, it seems like the best option is to wait until things are back to normal to continue the tours you love.

Please keep an eye on our webpage, or drop us a line ( to get notified when tours resume. We'll be launching Crimes, Cons, and Cocktails (Famous Columbus Crimes) and the Boos and Brews (Haunted HIstory) tour again when it's safe.
