Downtown West Bend Ghost Walk

Join West Bend author and paranormal investigator J. Nathan Couch for a haunting experience: Downtown West Bend’s first ever ghost walk returns this September for the 2019 Halloween season!

Historical information is blended with local legends and eyewitness accounts on this leisurely stroll past an assortment of alleged spooks, specters, and spirits!


The West Bend Ghost Walk is held on select dates or by appointment (see details below). Groups meet at the corner of 5th Ave. and Chestnut St. at 8:00pm (near the Old Sheriff’s Residence and Jail).

The walking route is roughly 1.2 miles (15 blocks), some of it uphill. Each walk lasts around 90 minutes depending on each group’s enthusiasm and athleticism. It’s recommended that you wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Please keep in mind that, while some local businesses with public restrooms along the route might be available, there is no guarantee. The cost is $10.00 (cash only).The tour is family friendly but recommended for ages 12 and up. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.


Can’t join us on any of these dates? Walks on additional dates may be possible by special request for groups of 5 or more people.

NEWS! Signed copies of Washington County Paranormal: A Wisconsin Legend Trip and Goatman: Flesh or Folklore? will be available for purchase at all Ghost Walks (while supplies last)!
