Downtown Wilkes-Barre Ghost Walks

Friday, October 15, 2021

The Luzerne County Historical Society is proud to announce that our Annual Downtown Wilkes-Barre Ghost Walks will be returning again this year! The popular tours will run on October 15th and 16th 2021. Come join us for a walking tour of the downtown historic district and learn about totally true ghosts, murders, and hidden graveyards, all right here in the Diamond City! Stops include: Public Square, the site of the former Sterling Hotel, River Street, and the only known place where Romans walked, right here in Wilkes-Barre. Come join the Society’s own Dr. William V. Lewis as he takes you on a trip through the darker side of the city, from the mid-1700s, right through the 20th century.

Tours start in front of St. Stephen’s Church on South Franklin Street at 6:30 pm, and set off every 15 minutes from then on. Tours last approximately 2 hours.  There will be 6 tours per night. Cost is $10 per person.

Due to COVID-19, tours are limited to the first 25 reservations ONLY.

NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. Tickets go on sale on September 1.
