1313 Vine Street

First constructed in 1855, 1313 Vine St. has a rich history. Its inclusion on our Cincinnati ghost tour is primarily due to what lies beneath the two sub-basements of the lower level, which span 4,400 square feet with remnants of the brewery that once existed. Down there, you can feel the hair rise as you stand in the presence of all who once passed through.



Wooden Nickel Antiques

As the home of all things antique since 1976, Wooden Nickel houses various light fixtures and ornaments that date back decades. When walking through the enormous store, it’s hard not to feel the presence of the previous owners of these items. Some of these items date back to the 1800s, not long after Cincinnati was founded.

The Betts House

As Cincinnati’s oldest brick house, standing for 217 years, the Betts House undeniably deserves its place on our tour. Four generations of the Betts family have lived in the home, once a 100-acre farmhouse, throughout the centuries. A house with such an extensive history is bound to possess secrets. You can discover these for yourself on our Cincinnati ghost tour.

What to Expect on your Cincinnati Ghost Tour

As one of Cincinnati’s oldest neighborhoods, these charming streets have seen bloodshed, tragedy, and crime since the neighborhood was built in the early 1800s. Spirits of the unmarked graves that were dug up to build Cincinnati Music Hall roam the area, some friendly, some not-so-kind. Old military hospitals, orphanages, outbreaks of disease, and murders contribute heavily to the otherworldly cloud that hangs over this neighborhood.

On Cincinnati Ghosts, you will uncover the gory history of some of Cincinnati’s gruesome past, including the hauntings of bars and theaters, the excavation of mass graves, unsolved murders, and untimely deaths. All the stories you will hear come directly from historical events, local legends, and eyewitness accounts of ghostly activity. Every account is painstakingly reviewed using historical records and accurate and up-to-date information regarding Cincinnati’s hauntings.

Our family-friendly and completely accessible tour is open to everyone, and while scary, we guarantee you will still be able to sleep after hearing the spooky stories on your Cincinnati ghost tour. Join Cincinnati Ghosts and experience the city as you’ve never seen it before.
