Like most historic towns, Denton is haunted by stories of a forgotten past.
This is the public blog for DENTON HAUNTS Ghost Tour, a walking Historic Ghost Tour in Denton, Texas that is faithful to this fascinating past while also entertaining you with stories of ghosts and hauntings. Both history and mystery, true and boo, our tales in a walking tour of the historic Denton Courthouse Square come from archival research, interviews, and oral lore about local legends. Founded by “Doc” (a local university professor) in the fall of 2011, our mission is to educate and entertain with TRUE ghost stories, history, and hidden secrets from Denton’s past and present even as we actively contribute to the groovy local culture of Denton. Partnering with Doc in 2012 is Shelly Tucker, a celebrated professional storyteller and recognized “American Masterpiece” by the National Endowments for the Arts, who brings her enchanting Texas twang to investigating the tales. Besides stories about Denton’s historic ghosts and hauntings, we’re also expanding our growing catalog of tales to include Denton’s Wild West Frontier Days, Paranormal Scares on the Square, Campus Haunts of UNT and TWU, The Quakertown Story, a HERstory of Denton’s Ladies and Wild Women, and maybe a cemetery tour of the I.O.O.F.’s residents of distinction.
Schedule updates and special events can also be found on our public FACEBOOK page but we are also available for booking group tours (for 10 or more) if your organization, club, or family gathering would like to hear about Denton’s history and mystery during the off-season! Drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org to book your group’s tour or inquire about creating a special event with one of our participating merchants! Meanwhile, poke through our archives to get a taste of our local tales!
