Barnstable Village's Haunted & History Ghost Tour
Are you looking for something out of the ordinary to fill your evenings? Join us as we walk the historic and haunted “Old Kings Highway” in Barnstable Village.... The date is 1645 Reverend John Lothrop, founder of Barnstable has a home built on “Old Kings Highway” and is now the Sturgis Library. This structure is to be the oldest building to be used as a library in the United States. There is a resident who has not left this historic building still walking the bookshelves and basement. That is just one building on the tour. We travel and stop at many locations like the Superior Court House, The Playhouse, The Barnstable Tavern and more. While on the tour you will hear stories of the conflict between the Loyalists and the American Whigs (Patriots) and how England had a stronghold on this small quaint town. There are over ten stops on the tour and eight are actively haunted locations. You will take a stroll along the headstones in Cobb’s Hill Cemetery where many strange and unusual things have taken place. The last stop on the tour has quite a reputation of being haunted... You will go inside and sit in the darkness of the “Old Jail” built in 1690’s by the order of Massachusetts Bay Colony Courts, and that is very actively haunted.
Parking: In front of The Old Jail on the grass.
