The Marble Orchard Ghost Walk is a Lewiston classic attraction that combines the very best of history, education, and thrills all in one. Here's a seasonal after-dark stroll through Niagara’s history that will leave you feeling a bit unsettled and a lot informed. The Ghost Walk only takes place September through October, a sort of annual historic festival that is considered to be one of Western New York’s most popular fall attractions!
While there is a certain time in which you can participate in the authentic tour, you can come here at any time of the day, and any time of the year, and still see the same historic buildings on a self-guided stroll (you can even get all the information from Niagara USA Tourism and make your own ghost walk). If you do happen to make it for the real deal, however, be sure to get here well before 7 pm when the tour departs, and also wear comfortable shoes and bring a flashlight!
The official tour begins at the Lewiston Peace Garden on Center Street and takes guests into the "rough and tumble frontier past," as well as the rumored ghost-filled present. Get all the details on the history of the creepy happenings and haunted buildings along the way, the tour being unrivaled in its historic truth and scary legends. Hear local ghost stories, mysterious myths, and tempestuous tales that involve all the most dramatic, yet truthful, tragedy, crime, mayhem, and murder. There will be ghastly secrets alongside funny tales through this historic district, and your night will aptly end in the Village Cemetery. Your group will sincerely love this educational opportunity, the entire guided tour taking roughly one and a half hours and being a very important part of the New York State Haunted History Trail!
