CONTRIBUTED BY ALABAMA SPECTRAL INVESTIGATORS
By popular demand, the tour guides who brought the Haunted Auburn Walking Tour to the community for the last decade have collaborated to bring Opelika’s Railroad Towns its newest fall event.
Alabama Spectral Investigators is proud to announce the Opelika Haunted Walking Tour. Join local folklorist, paranormal investigator, artist and professional actor Brandon Stoker (of “The Walking Dead” and “Zombieland 2”) and his investigative partner — accredited historian, local author and paranormal investigator John-Mark Poe.
With several decades of professional paranormal investigative experience under their belts and almost a decade leading the Haunted Auburn Walking Tour, these experienced tour guides will lead participants past downtown locations. They’ll share firsthand accounts from those who’ve experienced genuine paranormal phenomena that just couldn’t be explained. Many experiences reported have been verified by local professionals working in that district.
Stops include: The Spectral Train, Phantom Switch Operator, Prohibition Era Voodoo Dr.’s shop, Ghost of Tandy Keyes, Former Clement Hotel location, The Phantom Horse and Buggy and Spook of the mansard house.
Weekly tours offered by the co-hosts occur every Friday and Saturday of October, as well as on Halloween night. This 6 p.m. tour is rated PG and is approximately 30 to 40 minutes long — perfect for ages 12 and up.
Please note that this is a walking tour, held in the event of no rain. Please wear appropriate shoes. Gather at the old train depot on the closest end of Railroad Avenue by the old wooden stairs — 1032 S. Railroad Ave. in Opelika. Admission is always free. Love it?
