Ghost Tours (Adults Only)

Alexander Majors House
Tours leave every 15 minutes from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

In 1928, the Alexander Majors House was neglected and abandoned. Majors’ great-granddaughter, Louisa Johnston purchased the home, moved in, and began the slow process of restoring the house that would consume the rest of her life. Many say that even after death, she refused to leave the house out of her protective care. Join us for an adults-only ghost tour of the Majors House, where we’ll uncover some of the legends that swirl around the museum and reveal a fascinating cast of characters.

Tickets include a cocktail or mocktail in a collectible cup. Guests must be 18 or older to attend.
