Eerie Harbor Ghost Walk

Join us in the Ashtabula Harbor for our Eerie Harbor Ghost Walk as we tour the historic streets of this gem with a past that is deep in tradition and history. Although many have passed or moved away over the years and decades, some choose to never leave. Whether it is the tale of the departed spirit of a sailor, or a mysterious resident of one of the old fine homes or businesses, you will hear the stories behind these mysteries and maybe, if you're lucky, experience them as well. Hear the tales of early settlers of the world's largest iron ore handling port in the late 1800's. Learn about life with the many various cultures, the battles they faced, the brothels, and the 52 saloons along the harbor streets.

We base our stories on a mix of documentation, firsthand experiences and history.
