The end of October culminates with Halloween, and taking the Special Historic Hauntings Tour of Annapolis will put you in the right mood for the eerie holiday. Annapolis Tours by Watermark hosts ghostly tours Friday and Saturday nights from September 30 to October 29, 2016. They are scarier than the regular Historic Ghost Walk Tours of other months because a terrifying visit to a haunted house caps off the “special” evening.
Ghosts of Annapolis’ Past
After sunset, the 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 18th century buildings. As fog creeps in from the 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 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? The Annapolis ghost tours are creepy, but fun. Occasionally silly, the experience is suitable for all ages.
Special Historic Hauntings will bring 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 inside overnight. An October trip to Annapolis will leave a yawning emptiness of unrequited yearning without the spooky Special Historic Hauntings Tour.
Reservations are strongly advisable because the one hour and 45 minute tour is very popular. Online reservations may be made up to 2 hours prior. Guides may accept cash payments from guests who come to the Historic Annapolis Museum Store on 99 Main Street, where the tour begins. Credit card payments can also be made during store hours.
