New Madrid Ghost Tours
About the location they explore....
"Where the past comes to life". The mission of New Madrid Ghost Tours is to provide their guests with the best paranormal experience possible.
New Madrid, Missouri is a small town situated on "The Kingshighway", which is part of the El Camino Real and is located on the Mississippi River. Francois and Joseph LeSieur established a trading post here in 1783, this settlement was then called "L'Ansea la Graise" or "Cove of Fat". It was Colonel George Morgan who named the city after attempting to make New Madrid the capital of the Spanish Empire. He later lost interest, left and never returned. The town has had more than it's fair share of tragedy and turmoil. The Great Quakes of 1811-1812, the Civil War Battle of Island No. 10 floods, fires, murders, and mysteries, all of which lead many residents to believe that New Madrid is one of the more haunted small towns in America.
The tour begins with a brief review of evidence that has been captured in the Hart-Stepp House and the Dixie Theater, the two locations that will be investigated during the tour. The knowledgeable guide walks guests through the dark streets of New Madrid, Missouri, stopping along the way to point out areas where paranormal activity has been known to occur or to tell chilling stories. Guests are told of the Civil War Battle of Island No. 10 as they stand atop the levee overlooking the mighty Mississippi River. Further into this 90 minute walking tour, the group is told of the ax wielding slave-owner, the Christmas Eve murder of a gas station attendant, and the young girl who perished after falling into a fire.
