One of the most beloved and unconventional tours you can take in this area goes by the name of Alexandria Colonial Tours, an after hours spooky look at American history in this region. The haunting all started back in 1982 with Ed and Stella Michals, who eventually passed down their business to current owner Wellington Wells. The feature tour they created goes by the name of Alexandria's Original Ghost and Graveyard Tour, a tour commonly featured in local and travel publications, as well as a recent feature on Travel Channel’s very own Weird Travels. On this tour, you and your group will follow an 18th-century costumed guide by lantern light through the ‘charming streets of Alexandria's Historic District’, which is known as Old Town.
Hear ghost stories, local folklore and legends, unsolved mysteries, and stories of romance and revenge during your exciting tour, which will depart from the Ramsay House Visitor Center on King Street, just two blocks away from the Potomac River. What better way to immerse yourself in the past and ‘learn about the city’s history and American colonial culture’ in a both entertaining and educational way than with Alexandria Colonial Tours?
