About Historic Newburgh Ghost Walks

Ghost Walks features stories that are rooted in history. They have been gleaned from old newspaper articles and from family legends. This is an interactive encounter with history. You will see and hear about the spookier side of Historic Newburgh. Participants on the Ghost Walks can choose between two different haunted tours. On the Water Street tour, attendees will learn of river lore and some of our family town mysteries. The State Street tour focuses on Newburgh history, Civil War tales and the homes along State Street and East Jennings! Both tours offer their share of history, Newburgh style. The guided walking tours depart every 12 minutes from Preservation Hall (200 State Street) and each tour lasts about an hour. Come early and shop, dine and enjoy Newburgh.
