Strange LaGrange Walking Tour

BOOK TOUR

Ghosts, Legends & Spirited History

Southerners have always been known as great storytellers. So, when you combine this treasured art form with a dose of folklore, small town secrets and things that go bump in the night, you know you’re in for a treat. This is what you get on the Strange LaGrange Walking Tour. Led by the gregarious Southern spirit guide and docent Lewis Powell, it’s a combination haunt jaunt, history lesson and an overall great way to get to know the city, up close and personal.

You’ll journey down Main Street into the heart of town and past the site of a murder on the square back in 1896. You’ll also learn about possible paranormal activity at the LaGrange Art Museum, which started out as the county jail in the 1890s. That’s a bit spooky unto itself! 

City Hall has also seen lots of strange activity over the years. (Yes, insert your own joke about government here.) But is it haunted? Just try to explain away the footsteps, voices, crashing mirrors and elevators going up and down on their own. Hmmm.

Even if you don’t believe in ghosts, you’re guaranteed to learn something interesting about the town’s history along the way – and log more than 5,000 steps on your Fitbit as you go. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water. The tour starts on the sidewalk in front of the archives building. It’s appropriate for all ages and the route is paved so it’s easily accessible. Call ahead if you have any concerns. It’s best to get tickets in advance on Eventbrite.
