Join us as we lead you by lantern light through the darkened streets of the historic East Side, sharing with you stories that will be sure to send a chill down your spine.
Providence Ghost Tours developed a ghost tour based on research and historical documentation. They searched books Providence Journal index, talked to librarians, talked to locals and searched the internet. They resurrected many of the stories that were thought to be lost.
This historic neighborhood got its start in the 1630s and today is one of the cultural centers of the state. Home of Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design, the area was one of the first to be settled in Rhode Island back in the days of Roger Williams. The original homelots of the settlers lined what is today known as South and North Main. Although time has changed the area, many of the houses here date back before the Revolution.
ABOUT THE OWNERS
The Providence Ghost Tour was born early in the year of 2006 when friends Mike and Courtney decided they wanted to start a business...Courtney had spent a few years working as a tour guide on The Newport Ghost Tour and Mike, a former engineer, was working as an independent researcher for the Historical Society. Both had a general interest in the paranormal. They soon decided that they would look into developing a ghost tour. After haunting the poor people at the Providence Historical Society, burying the librarians at the Providence Public Library, slaughtering the archivists at the Rhode Island State Archives and making cute puns on their website, the Providence Ghost Tour was born.
They consider themselves skeptical believers in the paranormal and have tailored their tour to give their participants an unbiased view of recorded events, personal accounts and folklore. They do not spook their audience with the way they share stories. They spook you with the stories themselves.
THe tours start at 7PM in the fall (Sept., Oct. and Nov.)
and at 8PM in the summer (June, July and Aug.).
Tour takes approximately 3 hours
Price per person: $18
