Book Tour

Freaky Foot Tours grew out of Susan Johnson’s curiosity about the town’s beginnings starting in the late 1800s. Between work and raising a family she found time to support the local historical society by attending lectures, taking tours and participating in festivals. Later she followed-up by researching the town fathers–and mothers!– at the local library. As the decades passed she found more time to delve into the history of her adopted town and was drawn to the eerie and mysterious side of Flagstaff. When she discovered that most of the people she met didn’t know the stories, Susan knew it was time to start up a tour.

We’re growing toward being the number one haunted history tour in Flagstaff–and we’re working on so much more to offer! This town has a wild and freaky, rich and creative history behind it and it won’t change any time soon. So call us now and come on downtown for your peek into Flagstaff’s eerie past.

Dre Downtown Flagstaff Haunted History Tour

Dreadful Dre

Dreadful Dre grew up on the dusty, tumbleweed ridden streets of the west Texas town of El Paso, but has been rolling down the rocky roads of Flagstaff for nearly two decades now. His gothic western garb has been inspired by the ever present spectral subject matter and deadly details of this forested frontier town. Dre delights in presenting these tales of mystery and the macabre, in a fashion some would describe as: a little bit too knowledgeable. Dre’s knowledge and devotion to the topics of true crime and the occult are truly a thing of beauty, and he feels lucky to share even just an ounce of that with anyone who attends his tours. Listen close and keep both eyes peeled because Dreadful Dre will shed some light on the darker corners of Flagstaff’s haunted history.

+ What is a haunted / ghost tour?

Generally a haunted ghost tour is walking, biking or riding on a specific route through a town like Flagstaff, but sometimes through a house, cemetery or other place that has a reputation of being haunted by ghosts or spirits of the dead. Freaky Foot Tours is a walk (that’s why we’re foot tours!) led by a local guide knowledgeable in the stories told through-out the decades of ghostly sightings, strange noises/voices that people have reported hearing and eerie phenomena that has occurred.

We also want to impart a bit of Flagstaff’s history–sometimes it’s a big part of the haunting! Our ghost tours explore the sordid Wild West history of Flagstaff, Arizona through the historic downtown area and across Route 66 into the tales of death and depravity only the dead can tell.

While we are ghost hunters in our free time, at this moment we do not have a strictly ghost hunting tour. It’s something that we are deeply passionate about and want to bring to our guests in the near future. If you have had a ghost encounter, please share it with us!

Once upon a time Flagstaff was a tiny settlement that sat in the shadow of the San Francisco Peaks. In the mid-1800s the only white settlers were sheepherders and ranchers. All that changed when the Atlantic Pacific Railroad powered its way through in 1882. Like all areas where men toiled at laying the tracks for the great trains, a thriving community popped up around them. Saloons, cafes, gambling halls–there was no end of people ready and willing to help the workers spend their money! Many of these little settlements collapsed as the railroad workers moved on with their work, but Flagstaff had something those towns didn’t. Less than three weeks after the first train chugged through town the whistle on E.E. Ayers sawmill blew. It was open for business–and it was good, steady work for any man who wanted it. Where there was employment you usually found men with families–and where there were families, you usually found churches, schools, merchandising–in other words, the beginnings of a civilized town! The saloons and gambling halls and the women of the night didn’t go away completely–but the town quickly took on a different flavor than most of Arizona.

Outside of its rich history with Native American tribes– which would require several books to document– Flagstaff was first settled by sheep herders and ranchers in the mid-1800s. It was the laying of track for the Atlantic Pacific Railroad in 1882 that sparked the growth of a real town. Wherever the railroad went, men were needed. They worked long days and were paid real money that saloon keepers and grocers and ladies of the evening were only too happy to help them spend! Most small railroad settlements disintegrated as the track layers moved on, but Flagstaff had something most towns didn’t–the largest contingent Ponderosa Pine forest west of the Mississippi. Pine meant lumber and lumber was used by almost everyone in those days–in making railroad ties, building homes–you name it! No sooner after the first train went through than the Ayer’s lumber mill opened, offering good paying jobs and steady work for men and their families. The lumber mills, as well as the availability of the railroad, allowed Flagstaff to grow and continued to provide opportunities for the town’s people.

Let's hear out some of the success stories

I did the Halloween ghost tour of Flagstaff with a bunch of friends and wow was it fun. Dre's stories not only where interesting they also had a lot of humor and theatrics to it. As someone who has lived here for nearly a decade I also learned a ton about local history and events. I would, and have, recommended this for others and will definitely go and do another tour in the future.

Sean Parson

Excellent tour with great stories. Dre does a wonderful job narrating and setting up the story, while dealing with the normal city noise behind him expertly. Flagstaff has quite a bit to discuss within easy walking distance to City Hall. Definitely worth checking out, but make sure to dress warmly!! There's not as much walking to keep you warm as you'd think as everything is so close together.

Demi Vis

Flagstaff Freaky Foottours was one of the highlights of my trip to Northern Arizona. Though I am not normally into "scary stories" and was not sure what to expect, it was honestly wonderful! Yes, they were ghost stories, but the tour also presented a new side of Flagstaff history that I would have otherwise never heard about. It was honestly fascinating! The tour guide was very informed and personable and the entire tour was just overall very organized. Would absolutely recommend! :)
