Haunted History Tours being offered in Uptown Columbus throughout October

Local News

A Haunted History Tour is the first of its kind in Columbus.

Columbus Eats Food Tours started the attraction for the month of October.

The walking tour starts at Fountain City Coffee. From there, the tour guide shares spooky history associated with some of Uptown’s most notable buildings and into the Historic District.

Saturday night, Asher Brooks walked a sold out tour around Iron Bank, 1st Avenue, the Springer Opera House, and more, sharing unique stories that some locals on the tour say they had never heard.

During an interview with WRBL, Brooks said he visited the library to research the oddities around Columbus.

Brooks says the idea came from across the state in Savannah where ghost tours are a major tourist attraction.

“I thought, well we have just as much history. We were established before Savannah, so why shouldn’t we have something like that as well,” says Brooks.

Brooks says the walking tours are selling out.

For more adventurous thrill seekers, Brooks suggests the Wednesday night tour of the Springer Opera House.

The attraction consists of a group entering the historical theatre, with no lights on except the flashlights in guests hands.
