Annual Whitewater Spirit Tour
October is the perfect time for spooky, fun adventures! Enjoy a night of spirit-related stories and unique, behind-the-scenes access to explore haunted sites throughout Whitewater.
The city of Whitewater is known as “Second Salem” and is also famous for the “Witches of Whitewater” legends. The community has a rich spiritual history and a multitude of stories of witches, ghosts, alleged murders, and occult practices.
Hear the story of the Morris Pratt Institute, Mary Worth and the Winchester Family, serial killer Nellie Horan, the Poison Widow, and other fascinating legends.
Explore some of the most famous haunted sites, that are usually closed to the public, including:
The Water Tower at Starin Park (aka “Witches’ Tower”)
Mary Worth’s Crypt at Hillside Cemetery
Calvary Cemetery on the UWW Campus, the final resting place of Nellie Horan’s family
Many of the haunted sites on the Spirit Tour have been investigated by paranormal groups. U.S. Paranormal Research not only shares their investigative findings of paranormal activities in Whitewater, but also brings their equipment along on the tour just in case there is spiritual activity to witness firsthand!
Spirit Tour 2022 is happening on October 7th & 8th!
Spirit Tour 2021 was a great success and we had great interest after taking 2020 off. We were excited to welcome everyone and wished we could have accommodated all of the interested parties! The Spirit Tour committee is happy to announce that we will be back to full capacity for 2022! What else is new or has changed . . . . ?
