Historic Mount Airy Ghost Tours and The Darker Side of Mayberry Tour

Now it can be told! Mount Airy’s history as “Little Chicago” has been swept under the rug a long time ago as the city turned to cleaning up its’ image in the 60’s. Can you handle the truth? This 90 minute walking tour of our downtown area is handicapped-accessible and will take you to the areas some folks around here would still rather not talk about. Murder, mayhem, and moonshine are just some of the things you’ll hear about from one of our trained guides as you go behind the scenes of our famous squeaky-clean image. NO names have been changed to protect anyone!

Tours are held June through October at 3pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and are $11 per person.  Make your reservation by calling the Museum at 336-786-4478.

Historic Mount Airy Ghost Tours held Friday and Saturday night at 8 pm, May through the end of October, Join us for an exciting 90 minute, lantern-lit walking tour through Mount Airy's streets and it's historic past. You will hear about 13 of our "less mortal friends" and some of Mount Airy's resting places. Tours begin and end at the Old North State Winery, 308 N. Main Street. Wear comfortable shoes and bring your camera and umbrella, if needed. Tickets are $10.00 and pre-paid reservations are required.
