Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

The Admiral Fell Inn

Located at the corner of Broadway and Thames, the Admiral Fell Inn boasts a boozy past and a ghostly presence where guests might find themselves partying with the ghosts of rowdy sailors who never checked out. With reports of cold spots and darting shadows by guests and staff alike, these spirited seafarers now keep the night lively with phantom parties and ghostly butler visits.

The Horse You Came In On

The Horse You Came In On Saloon in Baltimore is a legendary haunt, not just for its rustic charm but also for its spectral visitors, including the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe himself, who allegedly blows in on eerie gusts of wind. Some say Poe's tragic death and tumultuous engagement to Elmira Shelton's brothers may explain why his spirit lingers, while others have witnessed mysterious chandelier swings and cash register antics, suggesting a lively spirit scene beyond just the famous poet's ghost.

Fell Family Cemetery

The Fell Family Cemetery in Baltimore might seem like a regular historic site, but some spooky whispers tell a different story. Legend has it that the site is now haunted by the restless spirit of William Fell, a playboy heir who met a mysterious end. Unable to find peace in the afterlife, he’s forever drawn back to his grave by the betrayal of his own kin, making for a spooky stroll through downtown Baltimore after dark.

The Hauntings of Baltimore

Founded in the early 1700s by two ambitious brothers, this bustling Port City quickly transformed into a hub of shipbuilding and trade during the Revolutionary War. However, with the influx of sailors, pirates, and other colorful characters, the neighborhood became notorious for its brothels, bars, and boarding houses. The vibrant atmosphere attracted all walks of life, but it also witnessed its fair share of tragedy, from deadly diseases like yellow fever to the horrors of war, leaving a legacy of debauchery and despair that can still be felt today.

Today, Broadway Square is a focal point in this historic neighborhood, surrounded by over 350 structures dating back to the 18th century. But behind the charming façade lies a darker past, where narrow houses crammed with residents, coupled with a lack of medicine, made the area a breeding ground for disease. Yellow fever ravaged the city, claiming the lives of many residents. From contagious plagues to the War of 1812, the streets of Fells Point bear witness to the tragedies of the past, with the spirits of the deceased refusing to leave their old haunts.

You’re obsessed with ghosts and horror

Some of us simply need a bit more in our lives. Some of us like the rollercoaster that breaks the sound barrier. Or the base jump of the old bridge.

We need morbid tales and possibly encounter an ancient pirate or two when you join us on our ghost adventure tour.
