Philadelphia is an old city with a rich past. Many know iconic Philly for its role in America’s early government, or its famous Art Museum steps from the Rocky movies. Or, perhaps you may know Philadelphia for its famous Eastern State Penitentiary – the world’s first true penitentiary system, once home to notorious mobster Al Capone, whose ghost is often seen in the hallways. 

Philadelphia is undoubtedly a haunted city with hundreds of years of ghastly stories. Behind the old brick buildings lay an eerie past of paranormal sightings, gruesome accidents, and untimely deaths. Benjamin Franklin is claimed to never have truly left the city, roaming the old streets and buildings, with his statues even coming to life and dancing in the streets. Other famous figures still lingering the cobblestone roads include Betsy Ross, Edgar Allan Poe, and Alexander Hamilton. These prominent figures shaped the nation we live in today but paid the ultimate price: wandering the city forever as a doomed, lost soul. 

Our tour will take you through Philadelphia’s Old City – home to some of America’s oldest and most haunted buildings, roads, and monuments in the nation. Our stories are based on historical events, local legends, and eyewitness accounts of paranormal activity. We’ve reviewed historic records and research for each of the stops on our tour for evidence of hauntings and spirits, and we strive to bring you the most accurate and up-to-date information about Philadelphia’s haunted past and ongoing paranormal activity.
