Will we see a ghost? Well, we sure hope so! And you’re welcome to take all the photos you want to try to capture one.

Is it scary? It depends what you’re scared of. If you’re wondering if this is the type of tour that will have spooks and scares planted along the way, you’re going to be disappointed. We tell ghost stories, the old fashioned way. We spend months researching and interviewing witnesses and locals to give you the most rounded history possible along the tour.

Are the stories true? All stories are historically documented through interviews and research, and they weave together the history and haunted tales associated with the sites. They are based in part from the stories found in Spooky Tales of Emmaus, PA.
