Flatiron Building

Asheville, North Carolina has architecture heavily influenced by New York City. You’ll find Wall Street, Battery Park, and the Flatiron Building. The Flatiron Building is one of the most popular attractions in Asheville, with a beautiful inn, breathtaking designs, and a super cozy sky bar. Some patrons claim to have had some spooky experiences while visiting it, though, like ghosts jumping off the building to plummet into Battery Park.


Grove Arcade

Construction of the Grove Arcade began in 1915. The idea was to make downtown Asheville more vibrant to attract more visitors to the city. At the time, it had a reputation as one of the most lively retail locations in the easter United States. However, the Grove Arcade has an eerie history, making it an excellent stop on our Asheville ghost tour. Experience the spooky sensations firsthand with Asheville Terrors.

Why You Should Book Your Asheville Terrors Ghost Tour Tonight!


Asheville is a pretty town, even more so if you take into account the views from the rolling peaks that surround the town. But the city hides an unsavory past that only comes out at night. These stories reveal what lies beneath the surface more than any museum ever could. We take you to the actual locations of the stories and the ghosts that haunt the town today.

Only Asheville Terrors will relate in such a poignant way, the tragic story of Zelda Fitzgerald and her untimely demise at the nearby Highland Hospital for the mentally ill. She stayed there for nine years and her tragic death, and the nine others who died with her was a black mark on the whole town.


The days are full and active in Asheville, but the nights get cold and empty here in the hills. Warm yourselves with a brisk one mile walk, 1.4 miles for the extended tour, and reveal another layer to this fun city in the cradle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. All tours leave from the historic Jackson Building on South Pack Square, each evening and take advantage of the descending darkness to bring out another side to Asheville.

You and your party will see that the supernatural side of Ashville is just as interesting as the city in the daylight. These carefully selected ghost stories bring the history and character of Asheville to life and will live on in your mind for years. A good memory really is the best souvenir.


We don’t want anyone to lose a night’s sleep, so we keep the tour family-friendly, that’s not to say these ghost stories are not scary, or gory, or incredibly memorable. They involve the people who made Asheville the fascinating town it is today. Their human stories of striving, loss, adventure, and ruin will live on in your memory for years to come.

So bring everyone, we welcome younger guests and older ones too!


This Spanish immigrant brought his talent and drive to bear on more than 1000 buildings in the United States and the chances are you have already been in under one of his patented Structural tiled vaults. The magnificent arched vaults under Grand Central Station – that’s Guastavino too. the vaults in Carnegie Hall, the Capitol in Washington, and the Boston Public Library – all Guastavino. He was involved in the construction of the Biltmore Estate and liked it so much here in Asheville he retired here.

His retirement didn’t last long though, unsatisfied with the meager church here at the time, he convinced the city to build the Basilica of St. Lawrence, a magnificent finale and final resting place of Rafael Guastavino, it was however over 3 months after he died that the frozen ground in Ashville was soft enough to bury poor Rafael, his unhappy ghost still roams the Basilica today, some say grumbling about his delayed interment.
