About this Event
Join us for the Fort Monroe Ghost Walk; Where History Meets Mystery. With public and safety and consideration for all, we have adjusted this years tour format to accommodate smaller groups and comply with current Covid Tour Standards. This year a new format will lead you on a semi self-guided journey to solve your own mystery as well share the traditional History and Mystery you are accustomed to getting from the Fort Monroe Ghost Walk.

Join us in the evenings, Monday, October 19th through Sunday October 25th from 5:15 PM to 10:35 PM with time-slots starting every 45 minutes. The final time slot for this path with start at 9:00 PM. Groups can range from 3 to 6 people depending on your comfort level. Tickets must be purchased online. No tickets will be sold onsite.

This ticket is for our Ulysses S. Grant Path.

On the Grant Path you will be collecting clues to bring to General Grant on Fort Monroe so that he can lay the ground work for his famous Overland Campaign which he is said to have worked on during his time on Fort Monroe in Old Quarters 1. Once you collect the clues from within the Commanding Generals Residence you will make your way to each location where you will learn the stories and history of Fort Monroe via scannable QR codes as you collect information to retrieve for General Grant.

Tickets are for groups of three (3) to six (6) individuals and priced accordingly.
