"Market Ghost Tours" Pike Place Market Tip by Jefie
Pike Place Market, Seattle: 146 reviews and 220 photos
There are a few ghost tours offered in Seattle but since we'd already gone on the Underground Tour and learned about the history of Pioneer Square, we thought we'd go on the ghost tour that focuses on Pike Place Market. This 1-h tour took us inside the market at night, when it is eerily deserted, and we also visited some supposedly haunted spots on Post Alley and 1st Avenue. The tour included a lot of historical and factual information about the market itself, which was great. The ghost stories were all based on Mecedes Yaeger's research on the area's dark past and notorious former residents, such as Dr. Linda Burfield Hazzard, suspected of having killed over 40 of her patients through starvation. We also visited a former funeral parlor that now houses a pub and a restaurant, both of which are said to be among the most haunted buildings in the Pacific Northwest. It was a very entertaining tour, but it was a little too short to really get in the right kind of mood. For this reason, it wasn't exactly the best ghost tour I've been on in the US, but it's still a fun way to start an evening in Seattle.
Tickets cost $15 per person and tours run every night, rain or shine.
Address: 1410 Post Alley
