About Us

History is all around us… spiritual, artistic, fascinating, and disturbing. Come walk with us.

The Birmingham Historic Touring Company (BHTC) is devoted to providing the most entertaining and educational tours and events in the mid-south area and beyond. Ranging from a tour of the historic downtown churches, a tour of the Civil Rights history of Birmingham, and others, including the ever popular Birmingham Ghost Walk, to slide and artifact lectures, to intimate gatherings and full stage events.

Our Guides

Edward Wolfgang Poe

Our founder and Chief Researcher, Wolfgang, in 2011 discovered there was no ghost tour (or any other guided tours) through the history of Birmingham. Locking himself in the library for months, digging through reams of old newspaper archives, and stacks of dusty archive records, he researched the basis of the original Birmingham Ghost Walk, and has since expanded to the variety of tours that are offered today.
