Ghost Walks of Historic Chestertown
Friday & Saturday October 20 & 21 and 27 & 28, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Our Ghost Walks share some of the odder tales of local lore, including those of murder and mayhem. From the tales of a haunt in the attic of the house where George Washington really did sleep, to the Court House Ghost that made international news a few years ago, guides will walk ticket holders through centuries of stories, told against a backdrop of local history. The ghost tales were collected from folklore – such as the eloping maiden and the blood stained rock of White House Farm; stories passed down through generations, including accounts of eerie lights in the cemetery where murderers were buried; and contemporary interviews with local residents and business owners.
We’re not here to tell you our houses are all haunted, but that many of them have some really unique, and quite often strange, stories as part of their past – and present.
Each tour will end with a visit to a purportedly haunted historic house, and a chance to visit with some professional ghost hunters.
