Preview The Most Haunted Locations In Tulsa

Welcome to Heartland Haunts

Across the Arkansas River sits a city where bloodshed once flowed through the streets known to be run by the wicked. Heartland Haunts: Tulsa Ghost Tour takes you on a journey through Tulsa’s dark past and exposes the horrifying truths that consume the locations you’ll discover on your stroll of terror.


Massacre, Mayhem, and the Mystique of a Haunted Theater 


Don’t mistake Tulsa’s seemingly innocent look for a shallow history. Beneath the city’s vibrant facade lies a dark past filled with moments of hope, despair, chaos, and senseless violence. The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre is a horrific chapter in American history that forever stained the city.

Join Heartland Haunts on a journey to the Tulsa Theater, formerly known as the Brady Theater, originally owned by the town’s founder, who had sinister ties to the KKK. It was here that one of the deadliest riots in US history took place, leaving lingering pain and anguished spirits. 

Uncover the unfathomable events that took place that fateful day and the bloodshed that left the area filled with the sorrowful cries of the departed. Gruesome and deadly as the event was, it wasn’t the only cause of the hauntings that plague the Tulsa Theater. 

Who are the multiple entities that inhabit this historic theater? Who’s disembodied voice can be heard echoing with sadness and despair throughout the theater? Get the answers to these questions and more on a Tulsa ghost tour with Heartland Haunts, where you’ll get a chance to experience the chills that overtake the locals time and time again.


What Will I See?

Visit Tulsa’s Most Haunted Locations, Including:


  • The Tulsa Theater – This seemingly innocent theater was formerly known as The Brady Theater, originally owned by a man with ties to the KKK. The building was used as a detention center following the Tulsa Race Massacre and, because of the amount of bloodshed on the premises, is considered one of the most haunted places in Tulsa.


  • The Hex House – Dubbed one of the scariest places in the country, the Hex House is steeped in real-life mysteries and spooky hauntings, making it the perfect spot for thrill-seekers itching for a spooky adventure with a ghost. Prepare to explore the dark secrets of Mrs. Smith and encounter the ghostly echoes of BonBon over a spine-tingling walking tour!


  • Cain’s Ballroom – Cain’s Ballroom, once a dance haven for Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys, now moonlights as a hotspot for both toe-tappers and ghost-hunters, where the spirit of Bob himself isn’t shy about making an appearance on stage or behind the scenes. For a night of music and mystery, grab your dancing shoes and join us on a walking tour to the site of the legendary Cain’s Ballroom. It promises a lot of ghostly fun!


Basement of Horror


Ranked among the scariest destinations in the state and region, Tulsa’s Hex House may be gone, but its dark legacy lives on. The original house was demolished in the 1970s, but the spot where it once stood is now a parking lot shrouded in unsettling activity and eerie events. 

Forget the ordinary haunted spots with historical ghost stories; the Hex House is a living nightmare that continues to give visitors and thrill seekers the creep. Prepare to hear the story of a wicked widow who inhabited the Hex House, Mrs Smith, and her manipulative lifestyle of exploiting vulnerable and innocent people and cashing in on life insurance policies of deceased loved ones. 

Today, strange occurrences like flickering car lights, disembodied whispers, and a pervasive sense of dread now plague the lot where the Hex House once stood, hinting at the sinister secrets hidden beneath the cold asphalt. Local lore claims the ghost of a dog roams the parking lot every night. 

Could it be BonBon, the ill-fated dog of Mrs. Smith, forever trapped on the ground where it met its tragic end, seeking solace or perhaps revenge? Join our Tulsa ghost tour at the site of the Hex House to find out more!


Where the Music Lives On… and Maybe Some Unruly Spirits Too


Music history meets the unexplained at Cain’s Ballroom, Tulsa’s iconic dance hall. Built in 1924, this historic venue began as a garage for the city’s elite, but after a tragic turn of events, it transformed into a dance academy and, finally, the heart of Tulsa’s swing dancing scene in the 1930s and 40s, thanks to Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys. 

But the music doesn’t stop after dark at Cain’s. Even after Bob Wills’ passing in 1975, his legacy—and perhaps his presence—lives on. Since his death, strange occurrences have plagued the ballroom. Staff and performers alike have reported encounters with a shadowy figure resembling Bob himself. 

Is it Bob’s playful spirit or something more sinister? Find out on a Tulsa ghost tour with Heartland Haunts.


Why is Tucson so Haunted?


Lawyer, Lies, and the Living Dead


For a city of its size and historical significance, Tulsa has had its share of eerie mysteries and hauntingly fascinating ghostly encounters. From reports of restless spirits haunting old oil baron mansions to legends of ghostly apparitions wandering the historic Greenwood District, the ghostly lore of Tulsa is as diverse and intriguing as its rich history. 

Jacobs Lofts, once a notorious brothel known as The May Rooms, is just one of the locations in Tulsa teeming with ghostly activity. Uncover the building’s dark past as Heartland Haunts reveals the intriguing story of Pauline Lambert, a beautiful call girl who serviced customers from her strategically placed aspirin boxes. 

Today, the ghostly figures of these women add a whole new layer of mystery to Tulsa’s already colorful history. Are the stories of Pauline’s ghost wandering the halls and Aspirin Annie’s spectral reappearances just local lore, or is there something more to these tales? Book a ghost tour with Heartland Haunts: Tulsa Ghost Tour to find out. 


Love Gone Wrong


The Tavern is just one stop on our ghost tour through the most haunted spots in Tulsa, but it perfectly exemplifies the city’s ability to surprise you with its hidden history and spooky secrets. With more than 150 years of troubled history, Tulsa is a city brimming with grim ghost stories and eerie tales from its Wild West past. 

Discover the eerie tales of love, loss, and longing that intertwine with the city’s history, leaving an indelible mark on those who dare to uncover its mysteries. Learn about an interracial love story that was tragically cut short by the Tulsa Race Massacre. 

What other untold stories of love, tragedy, and restless spirits lie in wait? Walk with us as we explore the city’s haunted streets and hear the story of a passionate artist named George Baker, who is said to still roam the halls of The Tavern in the Tulsa Art District to this day. 


What’s so Special About the Tulsa Ghosts Tour?


See A Different Side of the Largest City in the Green Country


Forget the glitz and glam that the city now desperately tries to portray. Almost every historic building has a story to share, including the Gypsy Coffee House, which bears witness to the city’s tumultuous oil boom and bust and the whispers of the restless souls who once walked its halls. 

If you think the story of an innocent oil rig builder who fell to his death during the construction of this historic building is eerie enough, wait until you learn about a young couple’s unexpected run-in with a vengeful ghost that still haunts the building to this day. Will you dare to pass by and risk the fury of a spirit determined to protect its domain at all costs? 


A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity to Explore the Center of The Universe


Tulsa’s “Center of the Universe” is a quirky landmark with a unique allure for thrill-seekers looking to experience the eerie and unexplained. Originally a bridge destroyed by fire in the 1980s, it was rebuilt as a pedestrian walkway connecting the historic Greenwood District to downtown Tulsa. 

Walk with our professional guides to learn about the acoustic anomaly of the Center of the Universe and see why it continues to baffle scientists and intrigue visitors from all over the world. Is the “Center of the Universe” a happy accident of physics or something more mystical?  Was it even caused by a restless spirit lingering from the bridge fire? Find out on this thrilling Tulsa ghost tour.
