Join the author of Haunted Portsmouth, Roxie Zwicker of New England Curiosities and explore the darker past of Portsmouth on this haunted history tour that steps back into a hidden and almost forgotten past of the city’s South End.
Seek out the shadows of shanghaied sailors and uncover the city’s sordid past. Did you know that some Portsmouth street names were changed to hide the secrets of the 19th century? Take a walk through the old red light district and be surprised to discover what a rough and gritty seaport this area once was.
Listen to tales about the Museum of Oddities and the train that ended up in a watery grave. Truth is stranger than fiction with ghost stories from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and abandoned Naval prison.
Discover the mysterious happenings from not just one haunted theater, but two! We will also reveal the location of a secret tunnel that even the locals don’t know about.
Guests will be able to make a “then and now” side-by side comparison by viewing historic photos and newspaper headlines at many locations on the tour as well. Please note that the stories are a little darker on this tour and may not be appropriate for younger children.
About an hour and thirty minutes in length.
