Venue / Location
Spirits of days gone by will be summoned to haunt the streets of historic Truckee, CA during the adults-only Historical Haunted Tour. Truckee is a beautiful mountain town with vacation rentals, shops, and fine dining of a top travel destination, but back in the days it wasn't always this way. The much loved annual walking tour attracts over 300 attendees, more than sixty volunteers and features tales of yore with a memorable and entertaining twist at Truckee’s historic gems and watering holes. The spooky walking tour begins with a glass of wine, interesting characters and a prize packed raffle at Moody’s. Historians and researchers from the Truckee Donner Historical Society spearhead the tales about Truckee’s Wild West railroad roots. At each stop, attendees’ imagination and senses will be tapped by original performances, visits from the infamous Truckee Regulators and songs by the Barbershop Quartet. It is rumored a libation or two will also be featured when least expected. There will be never before told stories about the scars left by raging fires and the tragic mishaps on the rails in Truckee. The tour will dive into the lingering haunts left by Wells, Fargo & Co.’s Haunted Express Train Car #5. Attendees will experience the most gory, frightening and amusing tour this October. In addition to attending the Historical Haunted Tour, visitors should enjoy a weekend full of hiking, fishing and dining– all accessible from the Tour’s lodging partners.
