Candlelight Ghost Tours of WilkesThe Sign

Candlelight Ghost Tours is located in Wilkesboro, North Carolina at the foot of the Blueridge Mountains. Folkore and ghost tales abound in this area, passed down from one generation to the next. Join us and walk amid the history of a proud mountian peoples as we regale you with stories of the past - well, maybe some folks aren't as "past" as we'd think. You might just hear the footsteps of the long dead Tom Dooley in the jail cell he once occupied or you might spy the earthbound spirit of the little girl killed by runaway horses. It's all here, just waiting for you.

The Candlelight Ghost Tours are owned and operated by Wilkes Heritage Museum.
