Real History | Real Hands-on | Real Investigations | REAL FUN!
Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours is America’s Leading Historical, Investigations Based Ghost Tour. We pride ourselves with offering the community and tourists alike, a True, researched, and Educational Experience with a Dash of Chills.
We were founded in the winter of 2010 and our tours are based on information that our “Founder and Visionary”, J-Adam Smith, discovered while researching the Beautiful City of Knoxville. He found that there were many intriguing stories that have been lost from the public eye. A rich past that should not be forgotten.
J-Adam Smith felt that Knoxville needed a unique Ghost Tour. He recognized that there was rich history and a lack of historical Walking Tours in the City of Knoxville and felt the city was long overdue for one of the BEST walking tours in the Country. Some of the Key points of interest on Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours is the Fact that our Clients are going on an “Investigation” with trained paranormal investigators, to real Factual “Ground Zero’s” (Researched location of traumatic happenings) , and participants are given Tools used by REAL paranormal investigators (as seen on TV).
