Full description
Experience a private ghostly walking tour of Milwaukee's historic and haunted Third Ward. The tour is just under two miles and ideal for all ages. Hear about how devastating fires swept across the Third Ward in 1892, which led to various scary tales. Learn about the mid-19th-century street gangs of the area and the ghost of a small boy named Timmy who has left many people terrified over the years. Next, visit the area of the Old Saloon and the Irish Pub, which was once a house of ill repute and where a lover's quarrel ended in disaster. Hear about how guests and employees have been scared by apparitions of the Lady of the Pub reportedly seen in the basement and the bathroom mirrors. Last but by no means least, walk to Milwaukee's most haunted location, the Pfiser Hotel, where the spirit of Charles Pfiser still roams. Famous baseball players from the Dodgers and the Giants are among those who have reported sightings; some say it is Charles's way of supporting from beyond the grave.
