The Siouxland Heritage Museum is holding their annual Haunted Sioux Falls bus tour. The tour is sold out for this year but keep in mind next year that tickets go on sale in mid-September. This tour is a fun way to look at some ghostly hauntings of local legend and lore. Participants step on the bus to travel to sites with supposed hauntings. At each stop, the tour guide shares the site's particular story. Museum staff says they can't give out all the stops that the tour makes. However, they did tell us that the Orpheum Theatre is one of their stops. According to hauntedhouses.com, the Orpheum Theater, which was erected in the late 1890's to 1900 time period, was originally used as a vaudeville theater. The website claims that an unknown ghost, known as "LARRY" haunts the playhouse. Use the link on the left side of your screen to learn more about the supposed hauntings.
