Group to host ghost walking tours in Grand Haven

It has been nearly 177 years since the first people began their lives in Grand Haven - and, with that much history, there is bound to be some mystery. The Gathering Research and Stories of Paranormal Phenomena Group will be hosting walking tours of Grand Haven on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14-15. They will guide guests along the downtown area and sharing some of the area's rich history and exciting mysteries. GRASPP will share stories about shipwrecks, uninvited and surprising "visitors' to local establishments, and more.

The 45-minute tours will start at the Grand Haven Elks, 15 S. Third St., at 7 p.m., and leave on the hour and half-hour, with the last tour leaving at 11 p.m. The cost is $5 per person, per tour; children under age 4 are free.   

Tickets can be purchased in advance online at, or at the Grand Haven Elks Lodge, or from any of the members of GRASPP.



Really? Who did the research on this article? I am perplexed about how 177 years ago the 'first people' began their lives here. The first people are the Native Americans who were here for a whole lot more time prior to 177 years ago. Please correct this extremely poor article and give some credit to the Native Americans.

Thank you.


Instead of immediately assuming prejudice or exclusion of Native Americans you should realize that 177 years ago was when Grand Haven was founded. The tour is for Grand Haven history and ghost stories. Obviously there were people inhabiting the land beforehand but the 177 years is indicating the time since Grand Haven was actually founded not the land before the town was established. Those 'first people' are the first Grand Haven citizens, I think someone else should have done their research before posting.


Thank you danigofaith!


Oh... we salute the native Americans every time we try to avoid their fishing nets!!


Superb is correct. The Tribune surely can avoid bias as blatant as this.
