State Street Tour:  Be prepared to be amazed by the freightening events that took place long ago on this quaint little street. Who would have ever guessed that such a gruesome past exists in the charming little town of Newburgh, Indiana? On this tour, attendees will hear stories from the Civil War Era, the Great Depression, and the early 1900's. Listen to some of Newburgh's most haunting tales, including the tradgedy at Farmer's Bank, The Exchange Hotel's slave history, and tales of Hulvershorn's Coffin Shop. This tour is great for anyone that likes to be spooked! What to expect: Each tour group is guided through the streets of downtown Newburgh by a tour guide.  The tour guide will stop at certain locations along the tour and tell stories of Newburgh's haunted past. There are also "ghostly" actors who tell stories along the way. The stories are based on newspaper articles, historical documents and stories passed on by Newburgh residents. This is not a "haunted house" type tour, so no ghosts will jump out and try to frighten attendees during the tour. The historic tales alone provide a good enough scare.The guided walking tours depart every 12 minutes from Preservation Hall (200 State Street). Each tour lasts approximately an hour and will stay close to the downtown area. This is an outdoor walking tour, and comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
