Several nation-shaping events have played out on Baltimore’s historic streets: the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812. Hundreds of years of lost lives and the spirits that remain make the Fells Point area popular among ghost trackers. Guided tours through the maritime neighborhood take you to taverns, shops, and restaurants where things go bump in the night.
Haunted Experiences: Tour the Westminster Hall Catacombs, the final resting place of Edgar Allan Poe, who is said to haunt various locations in town. At the 18th-century Fort McHenry, apparitions of a uniformed soldier with a rifle have been reported. Walk beneath the rigging of the 1854 USS Constellation warship and feel the presence of those who have met death on her deck.
Where to Stay: The haunted Admiral Fell Inn. Guests can join a free historical ghost tour through the hotel’s seven buildings every Friday and Saturday night.
