Full description

As you journey through the historic streets of Red Wing, you'll encounter tales that will send shivers down your spine. From local Civil War history to Native American Maiden Rock folklore, you'll gain unique insights into Red Wing's rich heritage.

Sample Itinerary:

  • Sheldon Theatre: Built in 1904 by Annie Sheldon, the wife of a local business leader, the Sheldon Theatre takes pride of place at the heart of the Red Wing community. Annie was, by all accounts, quite the force of nature, and even in death her presence can still be felt around the grand auditorium.
  • Liberty's Restaurant: This historic building has housed many different businesses down the decades, from a shoemaker’s and a clothing store to a pool hall. It’s also rumored to have been a speakeasy during the dark days of prohibition, and even a brothel. One thing’s for sure, it offers fascinating insight into Red Wing’s colorful past.
  • St. James Hotel: This grand old hotel has been welcoming guests to Red Wing for over a hundred years, but its location is far from ideal. The property was built on Native American burial grounds, and stories abound of creepy goings-on, unexplained cold spots, and ghostly whispers.
  • Caribou Coffee: Dating back to 1906, this historic building was originally a Chicago Great Western Railway train depot. If the walls could talk, what tales would they tell? Fond farewells of brave soldiers off to war, never to be seen again? Or heavy-machinery accidents where lives were lost? It makes you wonder, could those tales help explain the paranormal activity felt here...?
  • Colvill Park: Colonel William Colvill is Minnesota’s best-known Civil War hero, remembered for commanding the First Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment. His story is inextricably linked to the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, with heroic tales of fierce fighting, valor, and bravery.
  • Home Plate Grill & The Dugout Lounge: Much more than a traditional sports bar, the Home Plate Grill & Dugout Lounge offers upscale food as well as live music. But if you know musicians, you know that they are often reluctant to leave the stage, even after death. Learn how this new establishment has been conjuring some interesting hauntings in this historic building.
