Salisbury – The Haunted Crossroads of Delmarva
Salisbury, Maryland – Feel the heavy energy and hear about the remarkable paranormal happenings in the largest city on the Delmarva Peninsula. Nicknamed the “Crossroads of Delmarva” because the main north / south and east / west highways intersect there, Salisbury has always been a hub of commerce and known for its historic industries along the Wicomico River. But what about the old spirits that are still hanging around – in the antique store, office buildings, the old fire house, a mansion? Experience the tingly feeling of standing in front of the old Wicomico Courthouse while listening to a storyteller talk about strange occurrences there. Some even say the Salisbury University has a haunted building on its grounds. You’ll hear that story too, as well as the ghosts of Poplar Hill Mansion.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT GO INSIDE THE PROPERTIES. This is a ghost walk where stories of hauntings and unexplained events are shared while standing outside the property.
Salisbury is approximately 90 minutes east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
