We begin with the tales of the founding of our city as a rough and tumble mine and mill town, and continue through on with missing children, and spiteful murders..  We hear the tales of two of our haunted hotels, and three of the five original churches of the city.  There is then the tale of murders most sad, which has led to the legends of the “Mermaid of the Lake” and the major riot that followed.

  • We chose The Birmingham Ghost Walk for our date night, and had a blast! The tour guide is hilarious, but just enough so the tour was kinda creepy but not too morbid. I also loved learning about the history and architecture of the area. Highly recommend , but eat before you go 😂

  • I enjoyed the many stops we made like the Piedmont Hotel, churches, and the cemetery. It’s interesting how so many ghostly stories can be made up by rational people. Wolfgang is very knowledgeable, patient, and really enjoys his job.
