Do you think he can hear us? Do you think he can hear us? That’s the dialogue the business owner off the Capitol Square’s East Main street could make out when he woke up with a start after bookkeeping on a late night in his downstairs office. Thinking that it was his employees he opened his door to find the lights off and all of his bartenders already gone home. That’s when he remembered that his music venue used to be a funeral home and the weird experiences the people who renovated the basement told him about. He laughed it off as just a dream until he came back into the office, shut the door, and this time, completely awake, he heard the voices again…

Madison’s King Street and Capitol Square is the oldest part of the city, we invite you to learn of its secrets, scoundrels, and scares…

I’m glad we took the time to do this. It was fun! If you're in Madison, take this tour, funny and history rich. Great tour guide. I want to say Lisa. I apologize if that’s incorrect. But she was great.

The highlight of this tour was Lisa, the tour guide. She was entertaining, engaging, and made the tour interesting for a range of ages from 9-70+. The entire group was just over 20 people (3 in our family group, including easily bored tweens) and she moved us around Madison easily. We could always hear what she was saying, she had interesting stories, and we all really enjoyed it (even though it was unseasonably cold). I would highly recommend taking this tour, or any tour from Lisa.
