Ghost of General ArnoldGhost & Legends Lantern Tour

Plymouth's Original Ghost Tour has been entertaining visitors and locals alike since 1994. Featuring Plymouth's macabre past with incredible stories of blood, gore and ghosts, this candle-lit lantern tour provides a tantalizing view of events that have occurred in Plymouth throughout the years.

On this 90 minute ghost walking tour, you'll:

  • Relive Plymouth's haunted history as we visit haunted alleyways, unmarked burial sites, and investigate local legends throughout the tour.
  • Discover legendary Burial Hill and hear the stories of famous Americans like colonial governor William Bradford, original pilgrim settler John Howland, and Revolutionary War hero James Warren.
  • Learn about Plymouth's most famous shipwreck from the Revolutionary War and its connection to the notorious traitor, Benedict Arnold. Was his treachery really the cause of the ship's demise?
  • Experience the site where the infamous Wampanoag Indian Chief Metacomet, also known as King Philip, had his decapitated head mounted in the village for over 20 years after the bloody end of King Phillip's War in 1676.

Each participant carries a hand-made punched tin lantern as they experience firsthand the macabre events in Plymouth's past and the history behind them.
