Private Walking Historical Ghost Tour of St Paul

Private Walking Historical Ghost Tour of St Paul

Join us for a private walk of St Paul to hear eery stories of curses, mobster memories, revenge, and spectres. Your tour begins above the mighty Mississippi at the Old Revenue Building, whose modern construction will initially make you wonder how a building so new can already have a ghost in its midst. Visit the State Capitol, where the golden domed behemoth designed by Cass Gilbert is said to be haunted by more than a few ‘friendly ghosts’. From the capitol, look onto St Paul’s Cathedral, whose own imposing dome is the only spot in the city higher than the capitol itself. Next, as you make your way past the Fitzgerald Theatre - like many theatres, it has changed many times, but there are those who have never left. At the Landmark Center, hear tales of the cities mobsters and bootleggers for which the city was known throughout the 20’s and 30’s. Your tour finishes at the St Paul Hotel where gangsters, like Leon Gleckman, made their prohibition home bases.
