Since its inception in October 2008, the New Madrid Ghost Tours have provided guests with an opportunity to not only hear stories about local haunts, but to also partake in paranormal investigations in two of the city’s most haunted sites.
The tour begins with a brief review of evidence that has been captured in the Hart-Stepp House and the Dixie Theater, the two locations that will be investigated during the tour. The knowledgeable guide walks guests through the dark streets of New Madrid, Missouri, stopping along the way to point out areas where paranormal activity has been known to occur or to tell chilling stories. Guests are told of the Civil War Battle of Island No. 10 as they stand atop the levee overlooking the mighty Mississippi River. Further into this 90 minute walking tour, the group is told of the ax wielding slave-owner, the Christmas Eve murder of a gas station attendant, and the young girl who perished after falling into a fire.
Often men are touched when touring the former home of Mrs. Josephine Hart. It is believed to be the ghost of Mrs. Hart that gently tugs on the ears of the gentlemen who enter her home. A team of paranormal investigators lead the group in a thorough investigation of the haunted Dixie Theater, where a shadow man has been witnessed on numerous occasions, and footsteps have been heard from the balcony above. The group conducts EVP sessions, allowing guests to participate by asking questions of the spirits. Guests are encouraged to bring any equipment that they might have to use during the tours including cameras, video equipment, voice recorders, and the like.
The tours are given during the second and third Friday and Saturday in October, but private tours for groups of 10 of more are available throughout the year. There are two tours each evening, the first beginning at 7:30 p.m. and the second at 9:30 p.m. Reservations are required as space is very limited. The tours take place rain or shine and cost $10.00 per person. Visit the New Madrid Ghost Tour’s website at www.wix.com/newmadrid/hauntedtour for more information. To reserve a spot on this year’s tours or to book a private tour, contact the New Madrid Chamber of Commerce at (877) 748-5300.
New Madrid, Missouri is a small town situated on "The Kingshighway", which is part of the El Camino Real and is located on the Mississippi River. Francois and Joseph LeSieur established a trading post here in 1783, this settlement was then called "L'Ansea la Graise" or "Cove of Fat". It was Colonel George Morgan who named the city after attempting to make New Madrid the capital of the Spanish Empire. He later lost interest, left and never returned.
Our town has had more than it's fair share of tragity and turmoil. The Great Quakes of 1811-1812, the Battle of Island No. 10 during the Civil War, floods, fires, murders, and mysteries, all of which lead many residents to believe that New Madrid is one of the more haunted small towns in America.
About Christina McWaters
My role as Executive Director of the New Madrid Chamber of Commerce has introduced me to many interesting stories about our towns past. New Madrid, Missouri, the oldest American city west of the Mississippi River, is rich in history and hospitality, and in my research for our tours, I have also found that it is rich in hauntings.
Our tours began in October of 2008. Armed with an idea, I contacted local residents looking for stories, scoured the library and internet for ghostly tales, and talked my friends into helping put together the New Madrid Ghost Tours. It has been so much fun, and is my favorite event of the year. Though our tours are currently only scheduled for the second and third weekends in October, it is my hope that we can soon offer them year round. We do, however, offer private tours for groups of 10 or more.
We have had some really interesting things occur during our tours and during investigations leading up to the tours and I have no doubt that New Madrid, Missouri is a haunted town. It is my belief that New Madrid lies in a triangle of natural energy forces, the Mississippi River on one side and the active New Madrid Fault on the two other sides, producing massive amounts of natural energy for our spirits to feed from.
I have had experiences with the paranormal my entire life. The home in which my family and I live is haunted. I am a member of SEMO Spirit Seekers, a local group of paranormal investigators and have worked with Greg Meyers of Paranormal Task Force. I am currently working on ParaCon 2012, On Shaky Ground, which will coincide with the Bicentennial of the Great Quakes of 1811-1812. http://www.wix.com/newmadrid/hauntedtour
