Ghost Tours 2009

A delightfully spooky tradition presented by the Old Sacramento Living History Program. The days of gunfights, lovers' quarrels and business deals gone bad left their mark with strange happenings, creepy stories, and unusual sightings. Watch history come alive on a night-time walk through Old Sacramento as you meet characters that still haunt the streets and buildings of the historic district. Bring your courage and a little humor to this special tour, available only in October. Tours last approximately one hour and are not recommended for children under the age of 6.
