Ghost & Graveyard DORCHESTER Bus Tour – Lower Dorchester 3/12/17

Bus Tour of Haunted Dorchester – Hoopers Island, Blackwater, Church Creek & Cambridge

Did you know that the marshy, forested blackwater region of Dorchester County has had two people vanish without a trace, coffins floating up to the door, a wildmen seen in the marsh, two brothers locked in an attic, a location called The Seven Gates of Hell, and a UFO that was seen by scores of people — in some cases only feet from the hood of their cars?  Hear these and over a dozen more stories about the haunted landscape of lower Dorchester County in the comfort of a luxury bus.

ENTER TWO PROPERTIES – 2 GRAVEYARDS
Guests will be able to enter 2 properties on this tour – a haunted bakery and a haunted restaurant – famous for being home to “Mary’s Ghost.” Guests will also see the “singing Yew Tree” in one of the old graveyards.  4 hour bus tour (restroom on board) with 3 stops and a ride through some of the most gorgeous – and creepy landscapes in Maryland.

DIRECTIONS TO MEETING PLACE – DORCHESTER COURT HOUSE– meet in front of the Dorchester County Courthouse on High and Spring Streets in Cambridge.  (40-45 mins from Bay Bridge)  There is parking on the street and parking in the lot behind the Dorchester Center for the Arts. For that lot, head up High Street (away from the water), turn right on Locust Street and then another right into the parking lot.  SEE LINK at the bottom of this page under VENUE. Keep scrolling.

SITES ON THE  TOUR include Decoursey Bridge where ghost of Big Lizz has been seen, and Old Salty’s on Hoopers Island, Harriet Tubman’s homeplace, Old Trinity Church the Wild Men of Andrews, the Cowman of Crocheron, the Old Lady at Bishops Head, Lady in White, Seven Gates of Hell,  several properties in downtown Cambridge … and more.
