Streetcar 23 on the 400 Block Josephine Street

Join Haunted Heritage Tour on Nelson’s Streetcar 23

The Nelson Paranormal League is back and excited to announce the return of the Haunted Heritage Tour on the historical Streetcar 23.

The Nelson Paranormal League is back and excited to announce the return of the Haunted Heritage Tour but this time it takes place on the historical Streetcar 23. On Saturday, October 5 and Sunday, October 6 at 5 p.m. people are invited to enjoy a one-hour guided tour of Nelson’s paranormal side from the safety of the Nelson Electric Tramway Society’s 108-year-old Streetcar 23.

The paranormal league was founded back in 2004, with the mission to investigate and educate people about paranormal activities and the unknown. They launched the league with a Haunted Heritage Tour of Nelson and in 2006 filmed a documentary of their findings at a local Hotel, Haunt at the Hume.

It was when the league started to uncover significant paranormal evidence that they realized they needed to be careful with their findings. Over time the league found many allies and contacts to help them with their paranormal adventures and they are excited to be back and ready to launch a new era of investigations and tours in Nelson.

This year they are piloting a project with the help of the Nelson Electric Tramway Society who have been running Streetcar 23 for over 20 years with the strength of volunteers. To help the society in return, 50 per cent of all ticket sales will be going directly to their efforts to keep the trolley system running and their new museum project.

The Haunted Heritage Tour 2013 Streetcar 23 will take people on an hour long adventure on Nelson’s waterfront filled with stories about paranormal investigations, tales of intrigue, and a look into the haunted history of the Kootenays. The tour begins in Lakeside Park with an introduction to world of the paranormal and why Nelson is a hotbed for ghostly activity, you will then be treated to a variety of stories and first hand adventures with paranormal league founder and trolley motorman Chris Holland.

“The Haunted Heritage Tour is an excellent combination of entertaining facts about the unknown and the interesting stories of Nelson’s past,” says Holland. “It is a historical educational journey that tantalizes the imagination and leaves you wondering and wanting to learn more.”

The Haunted Heritage Tour 2013 Streetcar 23 will only have two runs. Admission is $8 per person and the tour begins at the Lakeside Park Station. Tickets are available at the Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce and will sell out quickly. For more information or to purchase your tickets drop by the chamber office at 225 Hall St. or call 250-352-3433.
