Enjoy a guided night walk through the Town of Easton, historically the “Eastern” capital of Maryland. Hear about the spirit of Marguerite, the murdered actress found in the elevator of the Avalon Theater. Learn about Mr. Grymes who is still demanding fine service of the staff at the Tidewater Inn. Meet “The Colonel” who haunts the courthouse and the phantom man in a blue suit who rides the elevator in the old jail. Hear how the spirit in the old Odd Fellows hall has “touched” the staff at the Clay Bakers. Visit the Home of the Friendless, the Eastern Shore’s oldest orphanage and listen for sound of Solomon Barrett playing his fife and drum in the old cemetery that also has two “healing trees.” The scariest stop of all will be at Foxley Hall, the most haunted house in Easton where mist and fog frequently appear inside the kitchen and living area, and where the screams of a woman are sometimes heard from a 3rd floor room. You’ll learn much about Easton’s history and more about the spirits that still hang around.
SITES ON THE EASTON GHOST WALK include the Talbot County Court House and old jail, Tidewater Inn, Avalon Theater, the old Easton hospital, the Odd Fellows Hall, the former “Home of the Friendless” which once served as an Eastern Shore orphanage and Foxley Hall – the most haunted house in Easton. Also included is a walk through Spring Hill Cemetery, a place where 10,000 Eastonians are buried.
