Boomers to Busters: Ghost Tour of capitol hill

Want to hear about the ghosts that haunt our capitol?

Attention: Late Boomers and Early Busters! Alumni, Spouses, Partners and Children 

After last year's successful spook tour we are going back to Capitol Hill.  Hear about the ghosts, deaths, curses, tragic events and violent figures that continue to haunt the Capitol building, Supreme Court (originally the Old Capitol Prison) and Library of Cangress, among others.


Tours begin at the Capitol Visitor Center and end near the Capitol South Metro. Last year we sold out so we are having two sections this year, one at 6 PM and one at 7:45.  Both are on Friday, October 25th.  Both sections are now SOLD OUT and the waiting list is full.  Please join us for another event.


It lasts around 90 minutes and is approximately one mile.  Tour goes rain or shine so dress for the weather.  Tickets are refundable (minus EventBrite fees) until one week before the tour; they are always transferable.
