Come join us in Old New Castle for our annual Ghost Tours…but only if you dare!

Beware of goblins, ghosts and poltergeists as you venture out on autumn evenings and discover the darker side of history by taking the only ghost tour of Old New Castle that brings you inside one of New Castle’s most haunted mansions.

Walking tours begin at the historic Arsenal Visitor Center, and include a visit inside the legendary Amstel House, where you may glimpse the famous “Lady in Blue,” who reportedly appears in an upstairs window dressed in a blue silk gown. 

In addition to visiting the Amstel House, you’ll venture out into the dark, cool night to explore other New Castle myths and tales of the supernatural. Mixed in along with the stories will be plenty of New Castle history – including mourning and funerary practices, cases of murder and early examples of capital punishment.

Hauntings in History tours begin at 7:00, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. on every Friday and Saturday night in October. Tours are held rain or shine and last approximately 75 minutes. All tickets are $16.50. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available online at our website or

These tours sell out quickly so reserve your tickets today!


  • Starting Friday, October 4th, 2019, repeats every week on Friday and Saturday until Saturday, October 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
