Ghost Tours of Phoenixville will be opening for the season on October 2nd. However, due to the reality that exists in 2020, we had to make some changes to be sure it will be a safe and entertaining experience for all.
Tours will be given weekends of October 2nd, October 9th, October 16th, October 23rd and October 30th. THERE WILL BE NO TOUR ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT. Tours start promptly at 8 pm.
In order to ensure proper social distancing, we will be limiting our tours to 20 people. The minimum size of any tour is 10 guests – that means if a tour night does not have 10 guests registered before 6 pm, there will be no tour that evening. If both Friday night and Saturday night tours sell out, guests have the option to be put on a waiting list for a Sunday night tour. Sunday night tours are for overflow guests only and are not a regularly scheduled night. GTP does request if you make a reservation and cannot keep it, please call us and let us know so we would be able to schedule other guests.
All guests MUST wear masks. Your guide will be masked when walking, but will remove it to tell the tales.
Cost for the tour is $15 for adults and $10 for children 10 and under. Guests are asked to bring exact change to minimize contact.
If you are not feeling well, please stay home. There will be other times to take a tour.
Bring your flashlights and your phones for pictures. We are expecting lots of paranormal activity.
We have heard some interesting stories about the Forge Theatre but this is the first year we have included it as a stop. Prior to being a theatre it was the Neiman Funeral Home. Actors have told us about a male ghost which has been seen hovering above the costume loft stairs and they refer to him as “Mr.Neiman”. We hadn’t included the Forge Theatre until we learned from a tour goer and Forge actress (Jan S.) the origin of the historical costumes used now for productions. (Lets just say they were used and reused for viewings…but no zippers or buttons were needed…) This may help explain the strange events still happening at the Forge Theatre.
Come take the tour and find out what we now know…

It was a dark and stormy night – really it was! One very determined group decided to venture out despite the threat of more rain. We altered our normal schedule and began our walk up to the most haunted location in Phoenixville – the Library. But along the way we stopped at one home where a ghost cat had been sited the year before. (For more information on ghost cats be sure to take our tour on the Outer Banks!) We encouraged the group to take pictures because we have had numerous orbs sitings here. Within seconds a large cat appeared along the roof line, followed by a strange cloud like figure. The group rapidly took pictures with their digital cameras. When we looked at the photos on our next stop, the strange figure was there, but no cat appeared in any of the photographs.
