Our tour guide was Shotgun Sadie, an self described old hippy turned tour guide. She was full of great information about Jerome and its history and ghosts. She does a nice job. Not a great actresses, but you can tell she is a believer.
I have never believed in ghosts. Just seems like a bunch of made stories to scare children. When my 7 year old daughter heard about a ghosts tour she begged us to go. We decided to give it a try.
I should say that many of the ghosts stories surround seedier residents that were involved in the old west brothels....so it may not be suitable for young children, but since my children were too young to know what a brothel is it was ok.
Early in the tour we learned about some haunted rooms in the local hotel. Our 'ghosts detectors' were even going off, but no ghosts activity you could see was present. But one of the guys in our tour group was telling the group about he had stayed in the hotel and had an experience of an apparition holding him down. Strange, no proof.
While we outside at one point, I felt something wack me in the head. Like a big moth had flown into my head. I swatted at it, but nothing was there. A little while later my wife felt something run along the back of her neck. Also, while we were in one of the rooms in one hotel the hair on my forearm stood up and I got all goosebumpy. But it wasn't cold. No reason for goosebumps.
Sort of weird, but no big deal.
What really got me was that they have a 'haunted car' outside their office. They had shown us some pictures of apparitions in the car and honestly they looked photoshopped
The last thing I did on the tour was take a picture into the window of the car. I couldn't see anything when I took the picture, but when I looked at the pic I would swear that I see a face! I will post the picture and you can judge for yourself.
I enjoyed the tour and it did challenge my beliefs. Go with an open mind and take lots of pictures.
