Elevator Ghost in Easton

Who Haunts Easton’s Elevators?

There are five properties within two square blocks in downtown Easton that have paranormal occurrences associated with their elevators or an elevator ghost.

Haunted Elevator at the Avalon

A previous owner of the Avalon Theater explained how one evening in the 1980s he and his assistant were taking inventory. He was still trying to get the theater renovated and in shape to open in the next few months. The doors were locked an only he and the assistant were in the building. As he explains it, he was on the second floor and the assistant was on the first floor over in what is now Bannings Tavern. The owner started to descend the stairs. As he reached the bottom few steps, his assistant came into the theater lobby from the bar and they both heard the elevator “ding” and heard the doors open. A woman stepped out. They were dumbfounded. She looked at them, then she turned around and walked straight through the theater doors – without opening them. The owner and his assistant ran into the theater. They saw no trace of the woman, but they would never forget her face. The owner started to research everything he could about the theater. He asked all the old folks who knew the old stories Easton and he found out that there had been a murder at the Avalon Theater – many years ago. It seemed a young actress was murdered and her dead body was found in the Avalon elevator.

Talbot – Caroline Ghost Tour (bus)

This registration is for a ghost tour of Central Talbot & Caroline Counties by bus on Saturday, Feb 8, 2014 at 12:00 noon
It will cover haunted sites not on the Easton or Denton Ghost Walks
GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE

Mindie Burgoyne, author of Haunted Eastern Shore: Ghostly Tales from East of the Chesapeake has crafted this bus tour that will cover haunted sites in Talbot and Caroline Counties, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. A certified guide with an understanding of the Eastern Shore’s haunted history will guide you around some of the most famous haunted sites on the Shore and recount the stories of soldiers, criminals, murderers, spirits of children and slaves escaping through the Underground Railroad. Research for these tours was gathered by studying county histories, old newspaper articles, oral commentary, personal interviews and the folklore collection in the Nabb Research Center at Salisbury University. The guide will point out places for where others have snapped digital images and seen apparitions and oddities, and you will walk through two cemeteries – one known to be haunted by the spirit of murderer, Marshall Price.

Talbot / Caroline Ghost Tour will meet at the Whitemarsh Cemetery which is approximately 40 minutes east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

SITES ON THE TOUR include Whitemarsh Cemetery, Robert Morris Inn, the hanging tree, the Old Denton jail, Willson’s Chance (haunted by the ghost of Annie Belle Carter), the grave of Marshall Price, Linchester Mill (site on the Underground Railroad) and Perry Hall.
