.: The Midwest's Spookiest Location

For more than a decade, paranormal enthusiasts, brave travelers and those who like otherworldly diversions have been flocking to Atchison, intent on exploring its rich haunted history. It began with the now famous Haunted Atchison Tours, a guide tour aboard the historic Atchison Trolley. Since then, we've added more and more offerings. These tours, programs and events have something for everyone, from the informational History/Mystery Walking Tour and the festive Supper with the Spirits to a night of ghost hunting with Paranormal Investigations, Atchison has a little bit of everything. And this year we've got many new events in store.

With the help of respected psychic professionals, we are offering gallery-style readings, new dining events and beginning  paranormal investigations. We've also partnered with local actors to offer a Murder Mystery Dinner and a night with Edgar Allen Poe and the Encore Players. There's even a special event for the kids, featured ghost story readings, hot dogs and s'mores. There's something for everyone!

Unlike many collections of haunted tours and events, Atchison's haunted history didn't just pop up all of a sudden when the trolley started passing by the sites 15 years ago. The stories and locations explored in Atchison have been collected over decades, some stories are even a century old. The stories have been told since Atchison was a bustling transportation hub and launching point for westward migration in the late 1800s, and later a pioneering railroad town. That's when many of our stately homes were built. The bizarre occurences in these majestic dwellings continue to happen today and paranormal investigators still hold Atchison sort of a Holy Grail of ghostly happenings.

This site is your guide to an entire season of eerie excitement and, for some, spiritual awakening. A limited schedule of events is offered each summer, then reaches a climax during September and October, when we offer more than 200 tours and special events. Start your journey with the Haunted Atchison Tour, but don't miss out on this unique collection of special events. Spend a day with us, or better yet a weekend. Get your tickets right here online, and get them early. Things fill up fast. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back often for updates, new events and more excitement!

.: Featured Event

Haunted Trolley & Coach Tours

A girl finds bloody vengeance in terrorizing every man who resides in the doctor's house where she died during a failed surgery.

A teen's voice continues to echo into the night after she jumps to her death when her lover breaks off their relationship.

These are the kinds of tales that make the historically charming town of Atchison legendary in haunting. In 1997, author Lisa Hefner Heitz exposed Atchison as the most haunted town in Kansas in her book, "Haunted Kansas." The Travel Channel continues to air its documentary "Haunted Town," a program dedicated entirely to Atchison's chilling stories. Since 1995, families from across the nation have come to Haunted Atchison Tours, a one-hour narrated ride aboard the Atchison Trolley or RiverCity Coach to see the sites and hear about the mysteries..

Keli AdamsKeli Adams

For over 30 years, Keli has used her uncanny gifts as a psychic, medium (connecting with departed loved ones and pets,) paranormal researcher (ghost hunter), and author of several books, to reach, teach and help people find their own "truth."  Click on any of the above pages for more information about some pretty neat "stuff."

She has been a flight attendant since 1986 and claims that the job is very "grounding" for her.  (Go figure).  Keli believes passionately that each one of us can help ourselves and others to change and "rebalance" even at a distance.  Keli's desire (as a psychic and a medium) is to show you that you don't need a psychic or a medium to find "guidance" or to connect with departed loved ones.

This is Keli's first season working with Haunted Atchison, though she has visited Atchison several times for special events. She will be involved with presenting several events this year, including Gatherings, Supper with the Spirits, Tombstone Rubbings and Paranormal Investigations.
