After allowing the spirits of Maryland’s capital to rest over the winter, Watermark’s Historic Ghost Walk will haunt downtown Annapolis again in April 2017.
Annapolis Tours by Watermark calls themselves “the authentic provider of guided historic walking tours in Annapolis, Maryland.” Their Colonial period dressed guides help keep American and Annapolis history alive by sharing their knowledge of the city’s past and folklore to visitors of all ages for decades. Watermark provides several tours of Maryland’s capital, and the Historic Ghost Walk is by far the most unique.
Ghosts of Annapolis’ Past
After sunset, damp darkness envelops historic and haunted Annapolis. By candlelight, a guide in period garb will take you on a journey while telling stories of tortured spirits still dwelling within the city’s 18th century buildings. As fog creeps in from Chesapeake Bay, frightening tales of watermen lost at sea, men who plunged to an untimely end, and matrons haunting the mansions they once ruled will be told. Discover mysterious footsteps heard, headless apparitions wandering the night, the infamous gravedigger perpetually at work, and hapless prisoners hanged to make space in crowded prisons. Hear all about the ghostly specter of Arianna Jenning appearing below her portrait in the Little Brice House only seconds after she passed away in England. Will you spot a poltergeist out of the corner of your eye? Will your camera catch a circling orb? This Annapolis ghost tour is creepy, but fun. Occasionally silly, the experience is suitable for all ages.
The Historic Ghost Walk will bring their guests into the dark heart of one of Annapolis’ most foreboding houses as stories of spirits who have made it home for centuries are told. Watermark’s guides possess the only keys that provide access after dark to ensure no one is left the whole night inside. An April trip to Annapolis will leave a yawning emptiness of unrequited yearning in your heart for the rest of your mortal life if you do not take this spirited tour.
