I have intended to take this tour for years and finally did so last night. Our tour began at the Lincoln Theater and our tour guides were John and Adam. From them I learned more Decatur history in 3 1/2 hours than I've learned in...More

Haunted Decatur has two tours--by bus or a walking tour. Last fall my granddaughters and I took the bus tour and loved it. Tour starts downtown and travels to sites throughout the city where ghosts and eerie events have been reported. Lots of stories accompany...More

I've been on this tour at least a half dozen times since its inception, even wrote a story for the newspaper on its 20th anniversary. It's always a good time and though they don't promise a ghost, you never know. The stories and being in...More

Decatur has a lot of colorful history for the curious . A cemetery that dates back to the civil war, and many other old historical mansions and sights, plus two old historical Theaters that date back over a hundred years are still in working condition.

Been on this tour 4 times at least. It is much better when troy is the host. He is more detailed oriented. Chip is more of an over actor.

I would not recommend doing this tour, unless it's free. The gentlemen did not conduct a tour of the house. They told us a very small history of the place, and then left us to "explore" the house. There's nothing to explore. A few rooms...More
