"Spirits of Cedarburg: Ghost Stories
and Drinking Establishments"
Immerse yourself in the dark side of Cedarburg’s history with stories and live performances representing hauntings and atrocities from bygone days. More than just ghost stories, the past comes alive in encounters with the ghostly citizens of old Cedarburg through costumed actors and historic photos. Just when we think that times are bad today, we are reminded that evil and mental derangement have always been with us, from the violent streets of the big cities to the quiet lanes of small town America - proving that perhaps the “good old days” were not so good after all.
This year’s tour includes scenes of new tales recently discovered in the deep recesses of historic Cedarburg documents and newspapers. Docents lead guests on a 90-minute walking tour through new and familiar stops in Cedarburg’s National Historic District and Zur Ruhe cemetery.
Tickets are available only through the Cedarburg Cultural Center: in person, by phone, and online. Guests should dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Tour group sizes are limited and tour groups are pre-assigned. The Center should be notified in advance if guests wish to be placed in the same group as family and/or friends purchasing tickets separately.
The Cultural Center is grateful to the dedicated volunteer committee members, writers, actors, docents, and ticket takers who make this production possible. All proceeds support the non-profit Cedarburg Cultural Center.
