The UGA Special Collections Library and Classic City Tours have combined forces for an unusual tour through downtown and North Campus. Each stroll will reveal the backstories of better known landmarks and little known lore of its people and places. Ever wonder which historic buildings have ghost stories? Wonder no more – as each tour explores the spooks, specters, and other oddities of UGA and the Classic City during the Halloween season. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an umbrella in case of rain – tours will depart rain or shine! Allow 90 minutes.

Tours begin at the Athens Welcome Center at 280 East Dougherty Street, inside the historic 1820 Church-Waddel-Brumby House. Park downtown and walk to the Welcome Center; on-site parking is limited. Tours conclude at Creature Comforts Brewery, just in time to take in a tasting and brewery tour (admission not included in tour ticket price).
