Step into the underworld of Anchorage, a hidden gathering of ghosts and spirits, on this 1½ to 2-hour walking tour through some of the city’s most haunted sites. It’s the most unusual perspective you can get of Alaska’s largest metropolis. You’ll spend most of the time on your feet, taking in the sights of downtown, walking through alleys and bars meeting the troubled spirits of Anchorage’s departed.
Your guide on this exploration is Rick Goodfellow, a dapper man in a top hat, tails, and Hemmingway beard. He is the husband of NFPW’s 1995 Communicator of Achievement, Jan Ingram. Jan and Rick own KLEF, Anchorage’s classical music radio station. They did extensive research putting this tour together, digging up historical documents, maps, and photographs, and walking into every downtown business and asking, “Are you guys haunted?” You might be surprised by some of the answers, including a tale about a ghost in the women’s restroom at the Hotel Captain Cook.
Dress for chills, cool weather included, and wear good walking shoes. It is wheelchair friendly. (Note: Participants on the 4-day pre-conference tour will not be returning to Anchorage in time for the Ghost Tour.)
Cost is $20.
