The Birmingham Historic Touring Company offers a variety of tours, events, and lectures, ranging from the Birmingham Ghost Walk to the 1963 Civil Rights Experience.
Our mission is to provide an uncovering of the dark and fascinating history that is all around us, but very few people know. The tours we conduct bring our guests a step closer towards that history by revealing that history, and on select events, providing an experience that is more akin to that of a real paranormal investigation or field survey.
We highly encourage the use of personal photography, video, and audio devices by guests on our tours. We make our first mission the satisfaction of our clients, as well as the education of the public.
1963 – A Civil Rights Experience
We will walk in the steps of the marchers and protesters. The steps of the Reverends Fred Shuttlesworth and Martin Luther King, Jr. The steps of the oppressed and the oppressors.
The Birmingham Ghost Walk
The Birmingham Ghost Walk is our signature tour and is the one that started it all for us. So much dark and interesting tidbits, along with tales of intrigue and woe, are contained within the pages of our history. For 2018 there will be two different tours just to tell it all!
