Haunted Statesville is a walking ghost tour full of old stories and legends from Statesville’s past. Step beyond the beauty of Statesville’s historic downtown and discover its true haunted history--where tales of spirits, scary creatures, mysterious deaths and creepy alleys become real.

Tours run October 19-20 and October 26-27 every half hour between 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Tickets are $10 per person. Reservations are required.

The Statesville Historical Collection will have extended hours during the Haunted Statesville Tour days from noon until the last person "gives up the ghost” and will feature an exhibit of photos to compliment the stories that are experienced on the tour. Each tour group will end at the exhibit, located at 212 South Center Street, where they will be featuring Statesville musicians Karla Causey Kincaid and Stewart Kincaid. Karla and Stewart will be singing songs about some of Statesville's favorite ghosts tales, including the Vance Hotel, the Santer, and Tom Dooley. Light refreshments will be provided by Preservation Statesville.

This event is sponsored by Downtown Statesville Development Corporation (DSDC) and the City of Statesville. For additional information and to purchase your tickets contact DSDC at 704-878-3436 or email:
