One Tank Travels: Haunted Tours of Little Rock


 
Although there is no official season for hauntings since they take place year-round, they seem to be more frequent as we approach All Hallows Eve. And that isn’t that far away. This Friday you can visit with some familiar “occupied” locations in Little Rock and North Little Rock by being a part of the Haunted Evening Tour. Haunted Tours of Little Rock will “introduce you to the ghostly side of Little Rock and the surrounding area” on Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. The MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History,  located in the Old Arsenal, is where you join the group. The birthplace of General Douglas MacArthur, the building is considered by many to be one of the most spooky places in the South. Tours are every Friday evening from Sept. 14 through Nov. 2.


An on-board guide regales riders with tales about some of the most “spirited” buildings in the area. You’ll also learn about 19th century funeral customs and how they relate to modern-day beliefs. Stops include The Empress of Little Rock Bed and Breakfast, Curran Hall Visitors Center, Mount Holly Cemetery, and the Hanger House in Little Rock. The Baker House Bed and Breakfast in downtown North Little Rock is also visited.

Tickets are $30. Seating is limited and reservations are required. The trips last approximately two-and-a-half hours and participants are welcome to bring cameras. Visit www.hauntedtoursoflittlerock.com or phone Linda Howell at 501-681-3857 for more information.

These tours are just the beginning of places to visit with former residents, shall we say? Additional information, including some first-hand accounts, can be found on the Haunted Arkansas page. You’ll find enough locations and descriptions to keep you scared for many months to come. Check it out…if you dare!

    Hello,

    My name is Jeff Johnson, and I’m the lead investigator of Spira Ghost Hunting based out of Beebe. I was curious if you scheduled private investigation in any of the locations you mentioned above? If so, we would love to come in and investigate. We have been a group for over 3 years, and have many investigations that we have done in the past. We have no problem if there is a fee, and also if you want somebody there to oversee the place while we are there, that is perfectly fine as well. If you have any information you can contact me through our team’s e-mail. Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.

  3. Kerry says:

    Hi Jeff,
    Some of the properties I do believe have been investigated. You would need to contact them individually and ask if they would like you to do an investigation. If you’re wanting to go along on the tour, you need to contact Linda Howell. Her contact information is included in the blog.

  4. Kerry says:

    Hi Randy,
    There are two hotel properties located very close to the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History, where the tours will depart. One is Comfort Inn & Suites Downtown (http://www.arkansas.com/places-to-stay/detail.aspx?id=90919&r=Central&city=Little%20Rock).

    The other is the Holiday Inn Presidential. http://www.arkansas.com/places-to-stay/detail.aspx?id=22136&r=Central&city=Little%20Rock

    We are thinking of vacationing in Hot Springs next year. Are you close to that? I don’t have my map yet I ordered. Thanks for any advice. We would like to have a cabin by a lake. Any suggestions?

  6. Christy says:

    Jeff,
    I have been a ghost hunter for awhile now and have been looking for a group to join as my friends are afraid of it. Wondering if you have a website or info you can get to me!!!! Looking forward to booking this trip!!!

  7. Connie says:

    While on tour when you stop at the haunted locations are you allowed to go inside and look at the place? Or are we just looking at the locations from the outside?

  8. Kerry says:

    Hi Judy,

    Hot Springs is approximately one hour southwest of Little Rock so it’s an easy drive. Both Lake Catherine State Park and Lake Ouachita State Park have cabins. http://www.ArkansasStateParks.com. You can also find information on http://www.hotsprings.org

  9. Kerry says:

    Hi Connie,

    It is my understanding that you actually go into the properties and not just drive by.

  10. Kerry says:

    Hi Christy,

    Jeff’s e-mail address is Spiraghosthunting@yahoo.com. You should contact him directly about his group.

  11. Barbara says:
