Philadelphia may be the Cradle of Liberty, but it's also a city spooked by true ghastly stories of the city that inspired Edgar Allen Poe to write "The Murders of Rue Morgue" and "The Raven." A city frightening enough to contain Bram Stoker's research for "Dracula."

Join Free Tours by Foot for a 2 hour exploration of the haunted history of the nation's most historic city and hear accounts of love lured specters, tormented souls of war, traitors and the sorrowful woes of the repentant dead. Possible sightings of desecrating German Soldiers, tragic Edgar Allen Poe, and Bishop White's murderous cook, maybe even a dancing Ben Franklin!

Sights we cover on the tour:
Independence Hall
City Tavern
Carpenter's Hall
Pennsylvania Hospital
Washington Square
Dr. Physick's House
Bishop White House
Old St. Mary's
Old St. Joe's
And much more...
