While Lawrenceville is the oldest city in Metro Atlanta, for many years it was a sleepy suburban Southern town. With the growth and development of the metro area, much of historic downtown Lawrenceville was renovated at the turn of the century. These renovations awakened the sleeping ghosts, and sparked increased reports of paranormal activity, thus setting the stage for Lawrenceville, GA Ghost Tours.
Whether it’s tales based on local legends, handed down over the decades, or recent paranormal investigations, our professional storytellers will regale you with stories that will send a chill down your spine. Come find out, if you dare, why Lawrenceville has the most popular ghost tour in Metro Atlanta.
Come take a 90-minute private scary stroll around the beautiful historic courthouse square and by storefronts restored to their turn-of-the-century charm.
- On our scary stroll you will:
- Learn about the night that the dead walked down the main street of Lawrenceville
- Hear about bizarre paranormal events that have happened recently in the businesses that line the square
- Step inside the Old Jail and perhaps experience paranormal activity for yourself
Join us, if you dare, for one of our private 90-minute tours of some of Lawrenceville’s most interesting places and the stories behind its most bizarre events, hauntingly told with the charm and personality of a real Southern storyteller.
