    I found your site while searching for fall festival ideas and noticed that you have our New Madrid Ghost Tours listed. Thank you so much for helping to spread the word! We are looking forward to another fun season Oct. 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, and 26, 2013!

    I have been on this tour several times. I do it every year. It is lots of fun to see reaction when the EMF meters go off or they hear the stories. I recommend that anyone, even if you don’t believe in ghosts, go on a tour. You never know what is going t happen.

    I surprised my friends and family (18 of us) with the ghost tour of the Missouri State Penitentiary on Halloween night in 2015. We arrived at 10pm for our tour and had the best time. Our guide did a great job of describing the conditions of the prison while it was still in operation and added some of the paranormal activity that appears at times. Best to do this tour at night for the full affect.
