Ghosts return to Rochester

Local News

Some of Rochester’s most famous ghosts will return to tell their gory stories this Friday and Saturday, October 26 and 27.

The Landmark Society of Western New York is back with its “Ghost Walk.”

It’s a nighttime guided walking tour in the City’s Arnold Park neighborhood. Visitors will meet Rochesterians who have returned from the grave to tell their true, horrifying stories.

This is the twenty-fifth year for the “Ghost Walk.”

“Since it’s the Silver Anniversary, we had to bring back some of the most popular stories from the past,” said Cindy Boyer, the Director of Public Programs for the Landmark Society. “Every year people say are you going to have Dr. Tumblety? Yes, Dr. Tumblety will be there this year, who is reputed to be ‘Jack the Ripper,’ a Rochesterian.”

The one hour tour starts at the Incarnate Word Lutheran Church at the corner of East Ave. and Goodman Street. There are refreshments at the conclusion. It’s recommended for everyone ages 8 and up.

You can get tickets at the door Friday and Saturday, but you can also reserve your tour time by getting tickets ahead of time. They can be purchased at Parkleigh or online at
