Market Ghost Tours, Seattle
The tour is currently going through a change of ownership and is not open to the public. Seattle is a relatively young port of call for the United States. People are surprised by the number of ghost stories in Seattle and specifically in the Pike Place Market. With a goldrush, epidemics, and rapid growth, there are plenty of stories to tell. Seattle went through major topographical change spanning 30 years after the Great fire in 1889. More earth was moved in the Seattle Regrade than in digging the Panama Canal. The Underground still around today throughout downtown is a result of the Regrade. The disruption of organic material (roads, buildings, graveyards) may add to the feeling of unrest around the Market.To visit Market Ghost Tours on your holiday in Seattle, and find out what else Seattle has to offer, use our Seattle route planner .
Our tour is not a ghost hunt. The skeptic and the believer can enjoy this tour because it is rooted in history. The tour is 75 minutes long. The Pike Place Market is a nine acre district with over 500 residents as well as businesses. It also includes the city's first mortuary, part of an old graveyard, and a brothel that still has a red glow cast on its side.
This is an exterior tour. Be prepared for the weather. We travel the nine acres from Pike Street to Virginia and take advantage of Post Alley as a way to navigate through. We encourage you to bring your cameras to try and capture phenomena and also to take some beautiful pictures of the neon and theatrical architecture in the Market. On the early tours we travel inside to the shops and lower levels. This tour is our opportunity to show you the Market the way few people get to experience it.
