Into the Haunted Forest – The Pocomoke Ghost Walk is the only on of the Chesapeake Ghost Walks that includes a walk into the Pocomoke Forest – one of the most haunted places in all of the Eastern Shore. No other single forest in the Mid Atlantic Region has as many ghost tales associated with it, except perhaps the Great Dismal Swamp.
The ghost walk begins with the Pocomoke River walk where the guide will describe how a Baltimore Sun reporter once stated that “the river takes one life a year. If it misses a year, it’ll take two the next.” Because of the River’s black color, there is no ambient light just 4-6 feet below the surface. It’s the deepest river for its width in the USA and the second deepest in the world.
Then the guide brings guests through Pocomoke City and describes spirits that haunt the River Gem Inn, the old Armory, the Mar-Va Theater, Cosden House and other sites in town.
Bu the spookiest part of the walk is when guests follow the guide into the forest and hear about spirits and aliens that have been known to haunt the forest. The cypress trees make for a spooky background – all of them seem to have faces.
