Guided Ghost Hunts

The village of Rugby is immersed with a historic and haunting past, and many of the original buildings from the 1880s are still standing to tell their tales. Join us as we tour several of the original buildings and homes, each reported to have ghostly occurrences and unexplained happenings. Led by Ghost Biker Explorations and/or Soul Sisters Paranormal, the Guided Ghost Hunt tours will allow each visitor to experience an immersive ghost hunt, and you will be introduced to tools and techniques used by actual paranormal investigators who study the realm of the unexplained.

xWe offer both public and private guided ghost hunts. If you have a small group of 4 to 6 people and would like to schedule a private guided ghost hunt with our professional investigators, we can customize a guided ghost hunt on a date that's not on the event calendar. Contact us at 423-663-5353 or email us to schedule. Dates subject to availability.
