Waukesha Ghost Walks

Waukesha Ghost Walk logo

A city of spiritualism, murder, curses, and exorcism. Even Mary Todd Lincoln stayed here while seeing a psychic medium whom she’d prayed would connect her with the soul of her assassinated husband. From its resort city history to the ghosts of modern day, see a side of Waukesha that you never knew existed.

Learn the interesting legends, real-life stories, and strange history of things that have happened in Waukesha. While modern history here only goes back to around the 1840s, when the town was called Prairieville, people have lived here for thousands of years.

Throughout the 2-hour tour, expect to hear a number of strange and gory stories that many people swear are true. A manhunt that started at the Waukesha County Courthouse that could be the plot for a true crime podcast. UFO sightings in Wisconsin. The truth behind a neighborhood witch. And perhaps the most famous account of all: the time Mary Todd Lincoln came here to visit a psychic after Honest Abe’s passing.

Please note: Some of the stories can get graphic, so if you get scared easily, be prepared!
