Private Walking Historical Ghost Tour of Madison

Your tour begins at the Wisconsin Capitol Building, where in 1904, a tragic fire resulted in the death of several workmen, whose presence is still well documented by building employees. From there, you will visit one of the city’s most beautiful —and haunted — old theatres, the Majestic, whose spectres are so real that one employee approached the figure to let the man know it was time to go home, only to realize the man was an apparition. <br><br>Then, see Monona Terrace up close, and see where the Old Madison jail stood, and hear tales of inmates being terrified by a spectre so alarming that they awoke the sheriff and begged for a different cell. Pass a nightclub, whose adjoining business was a funeral home, which left more than a few nightclub workers and band members some fights through the years and finally, your eery tour finishes at the Orpheum Theatre, which happens to be the final resting place for several Madison hauntings.

Terrifying -- looks like a scene from a post-apocalypse movie. Dangerous, dirty, and devoid of people. Stay away.

Stay away from State Street! It will leave you disgusted with what is happening in this country! Most of the retailers store windows have been boarded over and sprayed with anti-establishment graffiti!

There is just too much garbage laying all over the streets and freeway. It makes me feel unsafe. 8f you don't care to keep the city clean, you don't care about the people.

It’s so fun to return to Madison and walk here as we did yesterday. As I expected, there were some new, cute shops to browse and buy a couple things. No cars are allowed on State coupled with the university students, it’s just a great place.

Enjoyed going in stores and seeing what restaurants there are in the area. I enjoy the area and feel safer in the daytime.
