About PGT

Providence Ghost Tour is a walking haunted history tour of Providence's treasured East Side.  Our tour begins and ends at Prospect Terrace Park, situated in a beautifully preserved, historic neighborhood and overlooking Down City Providence below.  Let our guides lead you by lantern light in the footsteps of Providence's dearly-deceased-but-not-so-departed residents.  Keep your eyes open to see who lurks in the shadows of the streetlamps and enjoy the most unique view our city has to offer.

Our Roots and Our Journey

Providence Ghost Tour began as a silly idea of two friends, Courtney and Mike.  Could they start a business that they loved?  Could they exercise their creativity, penchant for performing, and history-nerd muscles?  After nine months and endless hours of research and interviews, the tour was born on wobbly legs in 2006.  That year, only a few tours set out on a route that is completely different from the route traveled today.  Over the years, some ghosts have made themselves more apparent than others, others have moved on, and some ghosts popped up in new places.  

Just as the tour morphed, so did tour ownership.  Life swept Ghost Tour Mike in a different direction (though he still checks in and will always be Ghost Dad Emeritus).  Courtney (AKA Ghost Mom) has sculpted the tour and refined the tales told.  Now a woman-owned small business, the PGT has become an annual pilgrimage for many locals and visitors alike.  Ghost Mom would like to thank the local community that has embraced this little paranormal pipe dream and allowed it to flourish for over a decade!

The Tales We Tell

The Providence Ghost Tour prides itself on authenticity.  The historical and paranormal research that was the foundation of the tour remains intact and integral today.  Each story has been carefully scrutinized and considered before making a debut on the tour.  As we've had personal experiences with the stops and their ghostly hosts, stories have expanded and fleshed out.  Each guide has a unique relationship with each tale and each spirit, therefore each tour is it's own unique experience.
