You will hear stories about terrifying ghost clowns, paranormal paintings, and mysterious bloody packages. Find out how a ghostly child tries to contact his mother, and why you may not want to visit the bathroom at a local bar located on the site of a former industrial steel factory.

What draws the supernatural to Pittsburgh?
Although Pittsburgh is known for toughness, even the roughest steel workers might cower at the city’s paranormal connections. Our tour offers an unflinching look at what makes the Steel City such a compelling haunted location. As the eighth-largest city in the United States, many people have come to the city in search of a stable way of life. As a result, Pittsburgh has a rich immigrant cultural history, which as only enlivened the city and added to its uniqueness. But not everyone is lucky enough to find success, even in a city like Pittsburgh, and those kinds of tragedies and failures are what drive the city’s darker connections. Pittsburgh also has a deep coal and steel history, and neither industries are known historically for their safety. The city is littered with stories of mining operations gone wrong and milling tragedies. Any city with a long history has run-ins with unexplained phenomenon, but Pittsburgh’s seems especially compelling, and that makes it all the more terrifying.
