Join Marshall Shore, the unofficial Arizona Hip Historian for a bus tour of historic graveyards, ruins, and ghostly haunts in downtown Phoenix. The tour commences at the Clarendon, a boutique hotel with a wildly checkered past. Once the scene of the infamous Don Bolles murder, the hotel is home to various ghosts, including some recent and some longtime residents.
The tour will include a drive by of the historic Orpheum Hotel (Adams and Second Avenue), home to the mysterious female spirit who wanders inside; a visit to the Pioneer and Military Memorial Park, the final resting place to notable figures in Arizona history and folklore; a peek inside the ruin of the historic First Baptist Church on 3rd Ave and Monroe, which caught fire in the mid-80’s; a stop at the San Carlos Hotel, home to the ghost of Leone Jensen, who has haunted its halls since 1928.
