It has been said that for every person living, there are 30 ghosts. Some are revealed to us. 
YOU may be walking with a ghost...Lima has a unique and sordid history all its own. From historic gangster shootouts that Hollywood loves to make movies about to documented downtown haunts and spooky local legends. You'll hear them all here. What you believe to be true is up to you... *This tour is rated PG-13 and is not intended for young children. It is not a haunted house; but it is a historical tour turned completely on its head. We use historical facts, local legends and folklore and creative storytelling to thrill, entertain and scare our guests. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! 

Tours last approximately 2 hrs and 30 minutes but could vary up to 3 hours, please allow at approximately 3 hours from arrival and dress for the weather as tours will occur rain** or shine. *PLEASE NOTE: The tours will consist of entering historic buildings that may have limited handicap access. Most, if not all, building tours will require climbing stairs.
