YOU may be walking with a ghost...
Lima has a unique and sordid history all its own. From historic gangster shootouts that Hollywood loves to make movies about to documented downtown haunts and spooky local legends. You'll hear them all here. What you believe to be true is up to you... *This tour is rated PG-13 and is not intended for young children. It is not a haunted house; but it is a historical tour turned completely on its head. We use historical facts, local legends and folklore and creative storytelling to thrill, entertain and scare our guests. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! 
Our professional guides are well versed in all historical and cultural aspects of the area and will both entertain and educate you as you explore Downtown Lima, Ohio. Visit www.visitdowntownlima.com for more information.
