Haunted & Historic Guyandotte Tours 2017




Guyandotte Ghost Tours 2017















Our popular Haunted & Historic Guyandotte Tours are returning this month for our 9th year! Our ghost tours bring out hundreds of people who are interested in the history and of course the legendary ghost stories of this once thriving town of Guyandotte. Guyandotte is currently a neighborhood of Huntington, West Virginia. Guyandotte was established in 1810, many years before Huntington but eventually was annexed in the early 1900s. With over 200 years of historic as well as tragic events that took place here, the community of Guyandotte is alive with many spooky tales and ghostly encounters. Two-hundred-year-old homes and buildings still stand in this little neighborhood, and many of them are believed to still alive with remnants of their past. Come join us on an upcoming crisp fall evening as we walk through the streets of Guyandotte and get an up-close look at the locations where current residents say the spirits of Guyandotte still roam.
