Kansas City has more than its fair share of ghosts, so this October, visit some haunted spots on the city’s best ghost tours!
Start at the Fat Cat’s Vortex Bar and travel to some of the haunted buildings of Kansas City, like the Indian Cemetery where disgruntled Civil War soldiers are buried, or Memorial Hall where a stagehand was electrocuted during a concert one night but continues to try to help with the shows. If you’re lucky, Patsy Cline, who sang her last show here, may even show – some nights, she sings on stage, offering a private concert.
K.C.’s history has plenty of mafia moments, and this tour takes you to places that hosted some major mob moments. The Hotel Savoy is haunted by Fred Lightner, who was shot on the fourth floor, or Union Station, the site of the 1933 Kansas City Massacre, where the mob tried to free a captured friend, but instead he died along with several others.
The Wornall House was used as a field hospital in the Civil War after Eliza Wornall lost her entire family to battles. While numerous ghosts are assumed to be haunting the location, the most common is Eliza who still runs the building.
