Shakers Ghost Tours

Visit Website Add to My Favorites

Walk amongst the dead in 4 floors of the historic 1894 building that was once a home to a cemetery, a speakeasy, a brothel, and the site of numerous deaths and murders most foul. This is the original Shaker’s Ghost Tour. The hour long tour talks about over 150 years of history and hauntings, on the site of what is now Shakers. The tour is mostly entirely indoors. With the exception of days with terrible weather, the tour does have a very small portion outdoors.

Please use your discretion. No one under the age of 18 is allowed without a parent present. Although Shakers is a restaurant first and foremost, we are also a cigar bar that serves cocktails. The tour does touch on sensitive subject matter such as murders and brothel life.

2.0 Tour
When you take the romance out of ghost hunts, classic eras and sex, what's left? Scandal, sin, fear, desire, and the hastily acting upon those things. The tour 2.0 opens up the gut of the original tour and exposes you to the ugly truth like Upton Sinclair did with the horrors of the meatpacking industry. Remember: Sex sells, bodies can be disposed of easily with the right means, lippy politicians will get theirs, and most importantly – when you think you're alone in Shakers, you're not. Enjoy!
