Haunted Vicksburg Tours with Morgan Gates

Haunted Vicksburg Ghost Walk
Come take a walk on the dark side with Haunted Vicksburg’s Ghost Walk! A twelve-block, 90-minute stroll through Vicksburg’s oldest and most haunted neighborhood. The Trail of Tears, antebellum duels, yellow fever epidemics, and a 47-day siege have left old Vicksburg with quite a legacy of “unfinished business” and restless spirits. Tours are Fridays and Saturdays (Mar – Nov) at 8 p.m. We ask that guests arrive by 7:45 p.m.

Haunted Venues Tour
Vicksburg has so many great ghost stories that we couldn’t fit them into one tour. The Haunted Venues Tour is a 10-mile, 90-minute tour where we visit four more of Vicksburg’s haunted neighborhoods. We later learn of a young man who had an early appointment with death, about a vanishing steamboat, and more. Tours are Monday-Thursday at 8 p.m.
We ask that guests arrive by 7:45 p.m.
