Black and White, an eerie silhouette reading Ghosting Lawrence

Join yarn-spinning Ric Averill as he walks you through Haunted Downtown Lawrence, assisted by spirits dancing, playing, and singing their way through the rich haunted history of Lawrence. Based on authenticated hauntings, Averill spins a tale of a town transported, burned, scarred, Phoenixed, uplifted and yet still haunted by ghosts from Quantrill’s Raid through the mid-1900s.

What is the path we will travel?  

The tour departs from the Lawrence Arts Center at 940 New Hampshire St. Please meet in the Main Lobby of the Arts Center. From there, locations will include the 900 block of New Hampshire St, The Toy Store (936 Mass St), the 800 to 700 Block of Rhode Island St, the Old Reuter’s Building (612 New Hampshire St), and outside of City Hall (6 E 6th St). The tour will end at Free State Brewing Company (636 Mass St).


How Long & How Far Will We Travel?  

Ghosting Lawrence is a tour covering six blocks, or just under one mile, of Downtown Lawrence. This tour will take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes and is just under 1 mile in distance.  We have done our best to consider accessibility for this tour, but the due to the infrastructure of historic Lawrence, participants will encounter brick paths and uneven surfaces.


What Is Your Weather Policy?
While it is usually cooler in late October, weather conditions can change rapidly. The decision to delay or cancel a performance is made at 7 p.m. & 9 p.m. nightly. Check our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information on cancellations.
