JOHNSTOWN — Locals can receive a history lesson with a touch of Halloween fright this weekend at the annual Johnstown Haunted History Walking Tour.
Presented by the Johnstown Historical Society, the tours will commence at 5:30 p.m. on Oct.14 at the Johnstown Colonial Cemetery, with tour groups leaving every half hour before the final group departs at 8:00 p.m.
The guided, 90-minute tour will take attendees on a walking tour from the cemetery through the city’s downtown region while making a stopover at James Burk’s Inn for refreshments.
The tour, which costs $10 per person, will take participants through the city’s mystery-steeped historical locations.
“We did it once before the pandemic and we did it last year,” Johnstown City Historian Noel Levee said of the tour. “It does have a bit of a Halloween theme to it. It talks about some of the freaky murders and deaths.”
The tour serves as a fundraising event for the historical society.
“It usually has a fairly good turnout, but so far we haven’t received a count (of participants),” Levee said. “It’s an interesting tour and people like going onto it. It’s a little bit of a walk and there are a couple of hills, but it’s a good event.”
Each group will consist of 10-15 attendees, with the historical organization noting that, with the tour requiring attendees to walk long distances up and down hills, the event is not suitable for young children. Older children are welcome to participate in the haunted tour.
“It’s a large block that we walk around and there’s guides that tell the story about each incident and give a little bit of history,” Levee said. “We walk by the old jail and some of the historic buildings and give a little rough history of them.”
Registration is required for the Friday night haunted tour, either online at or by calling the Johnstown Historical Society at (518) 762-2777.
