Departs from outside of The Jefferson Hotel
Located along the Victorian era "Millionaire's Mile", this tour meanders by Richmond's destination hotels, grand homes of the past, and the library donated to the city. Still a bustling area today, this was where wealthy Richmonders lived and played from the 1880's as the city limits expanded westward.
The domain of both locals and guests visiting the city, this neighborhood has long been "the place to be," and some folks just never want to leave! This tour includes:

September 26 through October 7
Shockoe Hill Cemetery, 4th & Hospital Streets
Haunts of Richmond and the Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery are teaming up once again to bring you the most unusual dramatic tour experience in Richmond.
This unique nighttime tour of Shockoe Hill Cemetery is led by Edgar Allan Poe himself! Poe, played by Mr. Charles Wissinger, guides you through his old haunting grounds, visiting the graves of those he knew and loved while living in Richmond, and interacting with their "spirits," portrayed by a cast of talented local actors. Like Poe, this production combines mystery, horror, humor, passion, pathos, sorrow, grief, and hope, in a way that captures the essence of the master of macabre, and reveals the nature of the perpetual connection with his friends and loved ones who rest for eternity in Shockoe Hill Cemetery.
Part tour, part theatrical production, you don't want to miss the Edgar Allan Poe Haunted Homecoming Tour.
11 public performances from September 26th through October 7th (the anniversary of Poe's death). Space is limited to just 25 people per tour, so get your tickets today!
Tickets are $18 for adults, and $15 for children 13 and under. Visit our schedule page to purchase tickets.
Proceeds benefit the Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery, an Enrichmond partner organization.
