Spirits of ’76 Ghost Tour – Halloween in Philadelphia

Spirit's of '76 Ghost Tour in Philadelphia

‘Terrifying Tales from Haunted Philadelphia’

Who enjoys spooky sites and stories that would be related to Philadelphia History. At the Spirits of ’76 Ghost Tour, you get to travel down the cobblestone streets of Old City, hearing these chilling stories.

The tour is approximately 75 minutes long and takes you to 20 sites throughout the Historic District of the city, visiting such sites as:

Not only do you learn a little of Philadelphia History while on the tour, but you get ghostly stories of mystery, death, and more that surround some of this Philly history. Hear stories about the Master of the Macabre, Edgar Allan Poe, who used to reside in Philadelphia and learn about Leo Callahan, the only prisoner to escape from Eastern State Penitentiary and never be captured! Learn about the legendary ghosts that inhabit Independence Hall, the spirits of Carpenters’ Hall from a first person encounter, the dancing statue of Benjamin Franklin at Library Hall and paranormal Pine Street happenings.

Are you a movie buff? You’ll visit famous film locations from big screen thrillers such as The Sixth Sense, Shooter, National Treasure and more! I had the pleasure of attending this tour in October of 2011 and I enjoyed it. I learned several new things about Philadelphia that I never knew before. We had a very good tour guide, Tim, who has been doing this for three years. Tim was very knowledge and you could tell that he enjoyed giving the tour, which made the tour even more enjoyable.

The Spirits of ’76 Ghost Tour gives you an eerie feeling after dark when visiting such Philadelphia sites such as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The Ghost Tour is affiliated with the Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia. If you buy a combo ticket for both Spirits of ’76 Ghost Tour and the Constitutional Walking Tour, you will save $4 as an adult and $3 as a child. Combo Ticket
