Tour Information

Home to ancient Native American battle sites and burial grounds, the Sit Down Strike of 1936-37, unsolved murders, economic depression, social injustice, and a water crisis - Flint’s unholy brew of energy has led to macabre tales of ghostly encounters and stories of demonic possession.

Is there something sinister lurking in Flint’s history to blame for all the hauntings? Do the souls of Flint’s murdered linger, craving justice by haunting the land until they get their vengeance? Whatever the reason, Flint is filled with frightful sites and terrifying tales.

From ghostly graveyard apparitions in Glenwood and Sunset Hills to spooky specters spotted in downtown Flint’s Capital Theatre and The Whiting, Flint is filled with ghosts.

Join authors, Roxanne Rhoads, and Joe Schipani, as they take you on a tour of Flint’s most haunted locations from their bestselling book Haunted Flint.


Please take care when going on a self-guided walking tour of haunted locations in downtown Flint. The area is not always safe, especially not at night.

Do not go onto private property, do not attempt to enter buildings. Some of the buildings are open to the public during business hours (The Dryden contains retail shops as does The Capitol) others are open for special events or by appointment only such as Stockton Center and Whaley House. If you wish to see inside please contact the establishment and make an appointment.

Other downtown Flint locations out of walking range but if you drive to the outskirts of town you can visit them

These 3 are all in the same location near or at The Flint Cultural Center.

Whaley House
Central High School Ruins
Flint Cultural Center- The Whiting and Sloan Museum

These two cemeteries are on opposite ends of the city- each on the outskirts of downtown and not in good areas.

Avondale Cemetery

Glenwood Cemetery
