THE MIDNIGHT GHOSTING TOUR: Old CROWN POINT JAIL

Do YOU have what it takes to brave these ghosts? Are you ready for an experience that you won't forget?

I often get asked "Mike, whats your scariest tour? I wanna SEE something! I want something to happen! I want to experience a ghost! Where can I actually have a great chance to SEE a ghost, feel something touch me or at least hear a ghostly voice from beyond the veil?" My response: The Crown Point Old Jail is a great place for that!
