Great stories about the history of Hangtown. On our tour up Main Street, we stopped at several points in town where our guide talked about ghost sightings, locations of the hanging trees, and various hanging trials and events from the past.

I booked a group and everyone loved learning more about Placerville history.

Thank you for taking to the time to review our tour. We work hard to mix in the history with the scary so every client walks away knowing a bit more about our BOOtiful town.

We had the best time on this tour!!
Our guide was a hoot as she walked us down Main St of this former Gold Rush town once called "Hangtown".
The stories are all based on real people including those who had a swinging time at the tree and gallows.
Getting to hear about "Irish Dick" was a riot, and we loved our orb photos pasted on their FB page.

We are so glad you loved our tour.

Yes. Irish Dick is very popular swinger 164 years after being dead.

We hope to scare you again soon.
