We dare you to explore the things that go bump in the night with the Ghosts of Marietta Haunted Walk Tour as guests journey through the historic streets of Marietta and discover the other side of this charming “gem of the South.” Experience a past that is deep in tradition and history with tales of old antebellum mansions and a Civil War past that are bound to conjure spooky sounds and ghostly apparitions. Whether a 90 minute lantern led walking tour or a jaunt through Marietta’s haunted watering holes, the Ghosts of Marietta have plenty of options to satisfy every level of ghost hunter.
