Old Town Ghost Tours highlight ABQ’s haunted history

The Church Street Café, The High Noon Saloon, La Hacienda Restaurant…

Take your pick of the haunted habitations within Old Town.

Albuquerque’s antiquated hamlet is reportedly home to more than a dozen specters of all shapes, sizes and ages. A civil war soldier reportedly rides a ghostly steed down the streets of the plaza. The one-time owner of the Church Street estate, Sara Ruiz, reportedly still has her hand in the daily goings on. A mourning apparition has supposedly been seen within the Chapel of our Lady of Guadalupe.

The list goes on and on.

Author Cody Polston has written a book about the various hauntings -some easily de-bunked, some still mystifying. Visitors to Old Town can tour the grounds for themselves with the Old Town Ghost Tours, running most nights. The tour takes a little more than an hour and offers an historic, spooky and comprehensive guide to the haunted stories of Old Town.
