ABOUT THE TOUR: Read what the media says about us here. We are the curators of Pittsburgh's nightmares, the archivists of its fears, the trustees of all things that go "bump in the night" in Western Pennsylvania. Come join us on a spine-tingling walking tour through one of America's most haunted neighborhoods. Pittsburgh has a North Side and a South Side, but on this tour, we take you to its dark side.
This is not a "ghost hunt." We happen to agree with something the famed demonologist Ed Warren (he’s portrayed in the “Conjuring” films) said when he came to Pittsburgh in 1989: "Do not fool around with the occult, do not try to communicate with the dead. You might think you have reached a loved one, but it could be something else, something evil."
And this isn't like those "other" ghost attractions -- the kind that pop up around Halloween disappear until the following year. We happen to think the truth is far more interesting--not to mention much scarier--than anything we could possibly make up. So if you are looking for underpaid actors with fake English accents donning ghoul costumes and telling stories that are obviously made up,then THIS ISN'T THE TOUR FOR YOU. If you get a thrill when zombie-wannabes, bathed in strobe lights and caked in grotesque make-up, jump out at you, THIS ISN'T THE TOUR FOR YOU. If you are pining to see door knockers transform into the face of Jacob Marley, THIS ISN'T THE TOUR FOR YOU.
But if you like creepy stories about the unexplained in Western Pennsylvania that will raise the hair on the back of your neck and leave you feeling a tad uneasy before you shut out the lights to go to sleep, this is the tour for you. We tell good old-fashioned ghost stories, creepy stories, stories that are "meticulously researched, brilliantly crafted, and beautifully told" (post-gazette.com). If you like real ghost stories with a Pittsburgh twist, Haunted Pittsburgh has what you're looking for.
