Once called "The Wickedest City in America", Davenport, Iowa has a long and checkered past and October is the perfect month to hear tales of Davenport's terrifying haunted history.
The German American Heritage Center, downtown Davenport is hosting guided tours every Friday evenings and Saturday mornings this month complete with stories of murders, serial killers and which areas downtown that could be haunted.
The tours explore the seedy past of downtown Davenport. The gangsters, the thieves, the ghosts and the...German serial killer? You'll be amazed by what you didn't know! As the veil between our world and the spirit world gets thin- let's go take a walk.
The GAHC event is very popular and getting great reviews. In fact, last weekend's tours sold out.
Event organizers suggest bringing a bottle of water and wearing comfortable walking shoes for the 90 minute tour. Tours are Friday, Oct. 15, @ 6:30 pm, Sat. Oct. 16 @ 10:30 am and 6:30 pm and Friday, Oct. 22 and Saturday, Oct. 23 @ 6:30 pm.

Ghost In Our Iowa Basement?
As a radio station, we have a lot of people here who have seen some scary stuff. Do you see any ghosts in these photos? I can't, but I also don't know what to look for.
This Isn't The First Face Caught On Camera Here!
In September of 2020 the band "Pit Lord" came to the building to shoot a music video. They shot it in the basement and for a split second in the recording, you can make out a face of what looks to be a woman. You can see that video here.
With a history of ghosts, it's safe to say the basement of our building is CREEPY!
