The award-winning Elizabeth City Historic Ghost Walk is a family-friendly, fun and creative way to watch our local history come alive.  No need to fear, our ghostly apparitions only wish to entertain as they spin their tales.

Welcome to the 25th annual Elizabeth City Ghost Walk on Friday, October 13 and Saturday, October 14 (5:30 – 9:30 both nights). This year's theme is the “Best of 25 Years!” Come and meet your favorite ghosts from the past Ghost Walks!

Ghost Walk invites you to enter historic homes where you’ll meet a friendly apparition who will draw you into the tale of their life and time in Elizabeth City during bygone days. Upon bidding adieu to your ghostly host, enjoy a leisurely walk from site to site or take advantage of complimentary trolleys.
