The Travel Channel Features our Ghostly Tales

You might have seen us recently on The Travel Channel’s program “Weird Travels.”

Their production crew taped a re-enactment of the tragic story of the lovely Laura Shafer at the quaint shop, The House in the Country. It took place in the actual historic building where the melancholy event took place.

Alexandria Colonial Tours guide Jamie Ennis portrayed Laura Shafer and guide Mary O’Day played her attentive grandmother. Then, president and longtime guide Wellington Watts led the crew through the haunted streets of Old Town.

To hear the heartbreaking ending to this endearing love story, join us on our Ghost & Graveyard Tours!

Ghost tours take place on Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 & 9 p.m., and Sundays at 7:30 p.m. (March – November).
We add tours on Wednesdays & Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. (June – November).
(Meet at the Ramsay House Visitor Center, corner of King & Fairfax Streets, Old Town.) And you’ll be abandoned in a graveyard!Read More →

Radio Station Features Our Ghost Tours

Around Halloween, Washington radio station Z104-FM aired a jaunty streetside chat with us about the spirited tales on our popular “Original Ghost & Graveyard Tour.”

Morning Deejay “JV” joked around, asking questions like, “Do folks in sheets jump out at you?” Not quite – but a shiver may rise up your spine when a cold wind comes up from a mischievous spirit hovering near.

From March to mid-November, we’ll be telling haunting tales of restless spirits, angry ghosts, and lovelorn souls who appear in the cobblestoned streets and manors of Old Town still. – Join us on the eerie streets!Read More →
