Captured at one of Asheville's most historic hotels August 20, 2017, three days after a jumping suicide.
The Downtown Spirits Tour is Asheville's only interactive tour using EMF meters and dowsing rods. This Tour of Thirds (1/3 ghost stories, 1/3 paranormal information, 1/3 Asheville history) and includes amazing photos of apparitions, mists, and orbs taken on our tours.
We will tell you why a famous architect haunts one of Asheville's most valuable buildings. Which building was the scene of 13 jumping suicides as a result of the stock market crash? Why do veterans haunt Haywood Street and why were 1100 bodies dug up and moved from Church Street in 1908? Who is the partial apparition that wanders Pritchard Park at night? And who really killed Helen Clevenger in 1936?
Be sure to bring your digital and 35mm cameras to ensure the best quality paranormal photos! Cell phones WILL work but you will get much higher quality photo, with more options to capture oddities and entities with digital. We will teach you the use of interactive equipment including dousing rods, EVP recorders, and ambient temperature thermometers. You can also download an EMF meter to your cell phone and we will show you how to use it, though these are not very effective downtown due to power & power lines and traffic lights.
