Visit the Most Haunted Places in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh’s vibrant city life and tough working-class attitude, along with some generous philanthropy from 19th-century steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, have helped build it into the eighth-largest city in the United States.

On this ghost tour, you will walk through Pittsburgh’s South Side and learn compelling facts about the city’s history, along with some stories and happenings that nobody on the Pittsburgh Tourism Board would want you to know.

Dunbar’s Place

Locals have often called this bar haunted. Are these just drunken tales by those who’ve had a few too many? Or could there be something more lurking in Dunbar’s Place? Most people come here these days to catch the Steelers game, but who knows – you might catch something else out of the corner of your eye. Be on the lookout.




Cindy Esser’s Floral Shop

This stately Victorian building went up in the 1870s as a shoe store for Pittsburgh’s elite. But by the late 1900s, it joined a line of vacant buildings on Carson Street. Cindy Esser bravely opened her flower shop in 1982 while Pittsburgh was still in its depression. Today, the beautiful flowers cover up a dark past that still festers like a dying garden.

Smiling Moose

This bar has been operating on the South Side of the Steel City for nearly two decades. But before that, it was a part of an operating steel plant. Just a few years ago, a security camera captured a bright floating orb in the basement. No one could identify what it was, but everyone could see it bouncing in the air. Do you have any ideas that could solve this mystery?
