Seaside Shadows' original Ghost Walk takes travelers through the historic downtown Mystic landscape crossing the bascule bridge between both sides of the Mystic River, guests will become immersed in the dark, sordid and supernatural history of New England’s famous seafaring village. From 17th-century strife of colonial life amidst the Pequot Wars and the King Phillip’s war to mysterious turn-of-the-century murders, Mystic’s history was founded in darkness. As the centuries grew, lost seafarers, creepy cryptids, and scandalous happenings took place in our quaint seaside community. At the same time, people of importance and resilience made Mystic a safe harbor for generations to come.
Hear tales of Revolutionary heroes, industrial revolution hot spots, and Union soldiers of the Civil War still seen in their spectral form all on our Downtown Mystic tour.
