Podcast #61 - Alexandria Ghost Tours

Hello. This past summer my wife and I spent some time in Alexandria, Virginia during our trip to Washington, DC. Alexandria is an incredible old town where you can walk the same streets that George Washington did and gaze upon the same buildings that saw the Revolutionary War and Civil War. We had heard of a ghost tour in Alexandria, found it online and made reservations. It was a great way to spend a June evening. The tour was really as much about history as it was ghosts. After the tour we interviewed our guide - Susanna. We would highly reccommend making plans for a ghost tour if you visit Alexandria. Check out their web site in the show notes below and if you're a teacher taking a group of students to the DC area keep them in mind for a field trip your students won't forget.

If you would like to share your experiences on an Alexandria Ghost Tour or would just like to leave a comment please do so on this blog or e-mail me at speakingofhistory@gmail.com

    I took your advice and did one of the ghost tours in Alexandria. Our guide was named Chris, and he did the tour for a company called Footsteps to the Past. He made the tour very intimate, informative, enjoyable, and more than just a little unsettling! There were several people on the tour who had done the tour with him before. At first I wondered why they would do it a second time, but now I understand. Chris will become a fixed part of every itinerary whenever I have guests visiting me in Washington.
