Shadows of Scottdale is a downtown horror tour that will explore the dark, TRUE history of Scottdale's dearly departed. This year’s one-hour tour will feature a collection of new stops and stories of historically accurate tragedies in Scottdale. Expect tales of gruesome murders, robberies, fires, unsolved mysteries, and more.
- Family “Affair”: A family reconnects after 20 years and things quickly go very, very wrong.
- Mad Dog: 8 cars and townspeople try to run down a mad dog wreaking havoc downtown.
- On the Run: Two murderers escape an insane asylum and make their way to Scottdale.
- Something in the water..or chicken? Dozens fall ill at a family reunion. Was it poison or fowl play?

And for those who missed last year’s tour, these tales will be featured again:
- The 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic, with new details
- Pine Tree Blast, told at Scratch Living Roastery & Cafe: once home to Loucks Hardware, the company featured in the story.
