Springfield Walks provides two different walking tours: Lincoln’s Ghost Walk and The Haunted Dead Walk. I personally have been on the Lincoln’s Ghost Walk tour and had a wonderful time. It was a unique way to see some of the historical places in downtown Springfield, all of which are associated with Abraham Lincoln. The tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. I imagine the Haunted Dead Walk would be just as fun, and someday, I hope to do it.
Both of these 90-minute tours begin at the Old State Capitol Plaza at 6th and Adams, which is about five blocks from the Hilton and Prairie Capital Convention Center. Details, such as days, times, and ticket information can be found here.
