We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. Westminster Hall Burying Grounds
This spot is most known as the location of Edgar Allan Poe's gravesite. What many don't know is that throughout the decades, bodies have been robbed of their valuables or experimented on by local medical students. Now the souls wander the burying grounds at night, forever unable to truly rest. Some claim to also see Poe, sulking to be reunited with his love.
2. Fort McHenry
This historic fort is said to be haunted by soldiers and prisoners of war. Apparitions of soldiers have been spotted guarding the walls and the faint scent of gunpowder sometimes lingers in the air. If you're feeling extra brave, head down to the prison cells where ghost hunters have recorded violent voices via EVP.
3. The Admiral Fell Inn
Crime ran rampant at this spot long ago, and some say the spirits of disgruntled mobsters and their victims remain. Room 413 is said to be the most haunted, as shadows dart around the corners and cold spots unexpectedly appear out of nowhere.
4. USS Constellation
Although you currently find this ship docked in Baltimore's harbor, it was once used for several occasions and in several wars. The crew members who perished on the USS Constellation still lurk, protecting their treasured ship. Some are even known to fully appear, interacting with tour visitors.
5. The Horse You Came In On Saloon
This saloon is known to be the last place that Edgar Allan Poe was seen before his untimely death. Now, some claim you can see his ghost walking down the street towards the saloon, or even inside the establishment. It's also not uncommon for ghostly orbs to float all around the bar.
6. Lord Baltimore Hotel
This Baltimore hotel is quite the showstopper and it's also filled with history. The apparition of a little girl has been reported wandering the halls while crying. It's rumored that she committed suicide in the hotel and her soul remains trapped within the walls. She may even grab your hand in the elevator.
7. Edgar Allan Poe Residence
Are you sensing a theme here? Tales of Edgar Allan Poe's ghost spreads all throughout the city. This particular place is where he lived for sometime with his family and it's now a museum dedicated to his life. Visitors to this spot claim to hear footsteps following behind them or even the feeling of being touched.
8. Leakin Park
Dozens of bodies have been dumped here over the decades, 71 that are known, but the number could be much higher. Some of the crime victims are said to wander the park at night, sobbing and appearing to be lost. This park is a great place to visit during the day, but maybe stay away at night.
9. USS Torsk
Another water vessel makes Baltimore's most haunted list. The USS Torsk is located in the harbor, offering visitors a tour of its fascinating interior. But while folks are taking in the historic sights, they sometimes also spot a ghostly crew member trying to climb aboard. Allegedly he died long ago while diving off of the vessel and still struggles to pull himself up.
10. USCGC Taney
You guessed it, another Inner Harbor ship that's known for ghostly crew members. This is the only surviving combat ship of Pearl Harbor so it's bound to have a tragedy or two. Check out this vessel and you may hear wandering footsteps and eerie whispers.
