Lawrenceville Ghost Tours returns to the second oldest city for an eighth year. Beginning Friday, May 4, visitors can take advantage of the great weather and step out on Gwinnett”s longest running and most visited ghost tour. Learn macabre local history, the kind of history they don”t tell you about in school, on a tour sure to enthrall your out-of-town visitors this summer.

Lawrenceville Ghost Tours highlights the most vivid stories of the strange and supernatural as a costumed guide leads ghost tour groups on a 90-minute adventure through beautiful Downtown Lawrenceville. Visit the haunted old jail preserved from the 1800″s. See where the corpses flew down Honest Alley and hear other chilling tales that will send a shiver down your spine. The tours don”t rely on bloody effects or startling patrons like a haunted house, but relies on captivating stories told by great regional storytellers, thus making the tour very popular with both children and adults.

The Lawrenceville Ghost Tours run Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. May through September and every night in October. Tickets are $12 for adults and $9 for children.

Group pricing is available for reunions, scout troops, red hat groups, church groups, company outings or neighborhood associations. You can even schedule a private tour. Dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes; this walking tour begins and ends at Aurora Theatre.
