Lawrenceville Ghost Tours

I remember when I was little, and my friends and I would have sleepover, prank call random numbers, play truth or dare, spend some time playing Girl Talk and then right before we lay our heads down, we would tell ghost stories. I remember the anticipation of what is coming next, the feeling of the hair raising up on the back of your neck during the stories and the fear to close my eyes. 😉 I’m still good for hearing a ghost story, which is why I was ecstatic to get invited to downtown Lawrenceville, GA to hear some spooky tales.

I received tickets to facilitate a review, as always, my opinions are my own

Aurora Theatre puts on the ghost tours in downtown Lawrenceville. Your guide will take you on the walking tour, making several stops along the way to tell you a tale of stories that happen in downtown Lawrenceville. Our guide stayed in character the whole time, didn’t miss a beat. The stories weren’t too scary and very suitable for children. It really was family friendly. Through the stories, we learned history of the area that I didn’t expect and found it very interesting. Our guide made our tour fun, keeping us laughing, engaged and always interested. He even made it fun for the kids. For instance, whenever we had to cross the street he would tell everyone to wait for the Spirit of Passage (or the walking signal). If we came to the signal sign to wait (the hand), he would tell us to wait for it is the Demon Hand. My son got a kick out of it, and now calls them accordingly.


One of the most interesting parts of our tour was viewing the old jail. I had no idea it was even there and I’ve literally walked past it before. Behind McCray’s is a little build, and looks like it is attached to the gun shop. Within are 3 cells. He told us a story of how a slave, who fought back for his life was prisoner there, and how to this day you can still hear him singing, just as he did prior to his execution.

The tour itself begins at Aurora Theatre and last approximately 90 minutes. I would suggest wearing comfortable shoes. Here is more information about Lawrenceville Ghost Tour, the Cemetery Tour and Brews & Boos:
