Horsefly History Tours
P.O. Box 2002, Durango, CO, 81302
Our Halloween themed ghost tour begins in the Secret Garden at the historic Rochester Hotel on 2nd Avenue. Guests may arrive early if they so choose to enjoy a drink from the bar. After learning about the history of the hotel, and the guests who never checked out, the tour ventures down to Main Avenue. As you walk see historical photographs and newspaper clippings to bring the past to life. Listening to stories of gruesome hangings, phantom children, a Sheriff who still patrols the sidewalk, and more, you will feel the hairs rise on your neck. End the tour by walking through an authentic 1890s era tunnel which has been enhanced for Halloween. We consider this stretch of the tunnel to be an active historical site. Use all of your senses to detect any paranormal activity. Proceed with caution.
All participants may purchase a spooky photograph of themselves taken in the tunnel. Professional photographer Molly Ferrer will be on scene at the end of the tour to take Halloween photographs*. Feel free to wear costumes. Participants will also receive a glow necklace.
