From Keith Kaufelt at Eerie Nights:

Rising from the grave this summer, a ghoulish crew of tour guides is returning to haunt Richmond’s streets and provide willing guests a unique way to explore the city’s history. This year Eerie Nights Ghost Tour is celebrating ten years of haunting Shockoe Bottom and Capitol Hill. Eerie Nights specializes in keeping guests entertained with guides dressed in period costume, special FX make-up and in-character acting all while informing the crowd about the history and folklore associated with various sites during the hour and a half long tour.

In the 10 years since the tour started, thousands of guests from around the world have braved the haunted scene, including a clown convention, a Mini Cooper race club and an Oscar-winning actress. Ranked the No. 2 ghost tour in the South by international travel guide Eventseekr, the tour has gained national notoriety. The company now produces a trolley ghost tour and specialty tours and events throughout the year in addition to its original walking tour.

Tours with Eerie Nights operate June through the first weekend in November.
