Join us on a trip to places that have stories about ghostly sightings and paranormal events. A special cemetery walking tour is included. The first stop will be the Glore Psychiatric Museum in St. Joseph, MO. The original 'State Lunatic Asylum No. 2' opened in 1874 with 25 patients. It chronicles the 130-year history of the state hospital and centuries of rather bizarre mental health treatments. The museum is recognized as one of the 50 most unusual museums in the country and mentioned in national publications and television programs including The Learning Channel, The Discovery Channel, PBS, and the Science Channel.

Next, travel to Atchison, KS, proclaimed to be the most haunted town in Kansas. A local step-on guide will board our bus for a tour focusing on the paranormal involving buildings and mansions. Learn all about the famous Waggener House (gargoyle home) built in the mid-1884-1885. Legend has it the owner gained his wealth through a deal with the devil, and the gargoyles on the roof were constructed in honor of the pact. One of the highlights of the tour is the Sallie House. It has earned a national reputation as one of the most haunted places in the U.S. - almost certainly the most haunted in the state of Kansas. The home and its haunting have been the subject of movies, television specials, and a documentary. Due to the home's previous dark history the tour will be limited to the grounds and not the interior of the house.

While in Atchison, there will be some surprise destination stops linked to ghostly sightings and also a cemetery walking tour. You may be walking on uneven turf and surfaces; please wear appropriate footwear. A delicious buffet dinner including a main entrée, salad, side, roll, beverage, and fresh baked cobbler served with ice cream is included in the tour price.
