Experience Galena's Top Haunted Tour

The charm of old Galena entices you,
the darkness of night descends,
and shadows envelop all...

The flicker of the candle lantern beckons you to gather closer...

 

Then the stories and tales begin, returning you to a feeling long forgotten. A place of mystery, fear, and suspended belief, where all is possible. The storyteller weaves the tales, the atmosphere heightens your senses, and a ghostly presence is ever lingering.

You're in good company...
