 Haunted Pittsburgh Ghost Tours

 Journey back to the Gilded Age of ragtime and of robber barons, of boastful mansions bathed in gaslight, and of a “Millionaire’s Row” that was the most exclusive address in America.  A writer named James Parton once called Pittsburgh “hell with the lid off.”  You decide how accurate that is realizing that our city’s character was forged in vicious labor strife and in pig iron furnaces.  Any town that’s experienced the turbulence ours has seen simply can’t escape its ghosts, and Pittsburgh is teeming with them.
Tours are 1.5 hours long. Find out more and purchase tickets
Location: Outside the lower station of the Monongahela Incline, Station Square
