Ghost Walk at City Hall

Neighborhood: Civic Center


Ghosts are no laughing matter at City Hall. Built on the grounds of a cemetery, San Francisco’s “People’s Palace” is also its number one destination for paranormal activity. We leave the building’s history and architecture for other tours. Instead we’ll explore stories of disinterred remains, assassinations and other ghostly lore, as well as actual experiences related by City Hall employees. Don’t believe it? Take a stroll through and hear for yourself.

(We don’t recommend trying to sleep afterwards.)
