Carlyle House

James Green refused to swear allegiance to the Union Army, so the Union Army went and took all his properties. And what did they do with James’ massive mansion? They turned it into a mammoth hospital for soldiers. The biggest in the land. This place saw so much bloodshed that visitors actually jumped out windows to get away from the dread and moans of the injured and dying. Is it any wonder it’s haunted?

Gadsby’s Tavern

Gadsby’s Tavern is a haunted bar that’s older than Virginia itself. Several prestigious historical figures dined there regularly, including first president George Washington. Patrons who have visited the establishment recently claim that some of those historical figures haven’t left the tavern. Some spooky occurrences have made it one of the top haunted destinations to visit during your time in Alexandria.

Wilkes Tunnel

Nothing screams “haunted” like a long spooky tunnel. The Wilkes Tunnel has garnered a reputation for being full of bad karma. It’s a creepy yet fascinating site to see if you’re stopping Alexandria. Built during the 1850s, it played a vital role during the Civil War. Alexandria used to be a central railway terminus during that era. The legend has it that several spirits still roam the location. For an in-depth spooky history lesson, don’t miss out on visiting with Wilkes Tunnel on our Alexandria ghost tour.

What to Expect on Your Alexandria Ghosts Tour

With a history so deep, the streets, homes, and even the pubs of Alexandria are haunted by the spirits of the past. On our Alexandria ghost tour, we’ll indulge you with some tales of the otherworldly while visiting the very sites that house the spirits of Old Town.

As Alexandria was once George Washington’s old stomping grounds, naturally people have spotted his ghost riding his white horse through the streets before it vanishes into the ether, perhaps on his way home or to survey another piece of land or running the affairs of the new country.

The history of Alexandria turned tragic when it became linked to slavery by becoming one of the largest domestic slave trading ports in America, and the city flourished from the unpaid labor of enslaved African Americans. During the Civil War, some accounts witnessed up to four bodies piled on top of each other along the sidewalks with an ankle-deep river of blood flowing along N. Fairfax Street.

Despite so much death, disease, and destruction in Alexandria’s past, generations of residents have remained, choosing to coexist amongst the dead. Join them tonight with Alexandria Ghosts on a thrilling ghost tour of Alexandria.
