As the weather chills and summer dies off, it’s an opportune time to experience a ghost tour with Annapolis Tours℠ by Watermark®. This Historic Ghost Walk takes guests back to a time of superstition and legend. During the month of October the tour expands to Special Historic Hauntings where guests will get an exclusive – and rarely offered – trip inside the haunted William Paca House at night. Ghoulish period dressed guides lead the way by candlelight through historic – and many say haunted – Annapolis. Listen to tales of spirits who linger in the mist and explore one of Annapolis’ best known cemeteries. Some guests have even captured photos of digital orbs on this tour. Ghost tours are offered Friday and Saturday evenings at dusk now through October 26.
From Spring through September, Annapolis Tours’ Historic Ghost Walk tells the infamous ghost tales of this ancient city including spooky stories of drowned watermen, headless apparitions, night wanderings, grisly accidents and the town’s most haunted property, the Big Brice House. Believers and skeptics alike are welcome to join Watermark’s creepy and entertaining guides. The 1 ½ hour tour is suitable for ghouls and humans of all ages. A glowing ghost necklace will protect you from the spirits but be sure to keep an eye out for low flying bats.
For the month of October only, the tour expands to a Special Historic Hauntings just in time for the Halloween season! A partnership between Annapolis Tours and Historic Annapolis, this unique tour offers guests an exclusive opportunity to step foot inside one of Annapolis’ most well known haunts, the William Paca House, a night. Explore the spooky interior by candlelight and take a trip into – and hopefully out of – the home’s sick room.
"Historic Annapolis is thrilled to partner with Watermark to create this must-see haunted tour which shows a completely different side of the historic William Paca House," says Carrie Kiewitt, Senior Vice President of Advancement for Historic Annapolis.
