Haunted Downtown Walking Tours

Are you looking for some fun and adventure...and maybe some scares? Follow the lantern of your costumed guide through downtown and let the darkness of the past envelope you. Cape Girardeau’s historic downtown is full of “true" tales of ghosts and memorable characters as well as landmark buildings. Best of all, these tours are offered all-year round!

Tours meet at the pavilion across from Hutson's Fine Furniture on Main St. Please arrive 15 minutes before the tour time to find parking. These are walking tours that last approximately one and a half hours, so dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes...or you'll end up dead on your feet.

If you are ready for a scare, contact the Office of Extended and Continuing Education to set up a tour today! We can run group tours with a minimum of 8 participants (and up to 40 participants) all year round. We are just dying to take your breath away.
