Snow Hill Ghost Walk

Haunted Mansion and Haunted Inns along a Haunted River

Snow Hill is just 30 minutes from Ocean City, Salisbury and Chincoteague.  It’s one of the most historically in tact towns on the Eastern Shore with beautiful architecture and interesting haunts. Set on the mystical Pocomoke River and bordered by its haunted forest, Snow Hill has a special energy.

Enjoy a nighttime walk around one of the Eastern Shore’s most haunted towns.  Snow Hill, Maryland in Worcester County is known for its haunted Snow Hill Inn on Market Street, that is said to be haunted by the ghost of William Aydelotte, a pharmacology student who committed suicide in 1904 by slitting his own throat …. twice.

The Snow Hill Inn isn’t the only property with spirits.  Former owners of the  Governor’s Mansion on Church Street reported that Governor John Walter Smith appeared to their children soon after they moved in.  The town hall has a ghost that occupies one of the 2nd-floor rooms.  Mapleton has been known to have the voices of children coming from the old gardens and the River House may have a child or two as well.

The houses on Federal and Church Streets are some of the most beautiful Victorians on the Eastern Shore.  Hear stories about several of those properties.  Also hear tales about tragedies and mysteries in the Pocomoke Forest.

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.

    1. The tickets should come via email. Check your spam box. The guide has the name of all the guests who are registered for the tour anyway, so you only need them if there’s an issue. You can have us resend them or call to make sure you’re on the list and then don’t worry about it.

  1. Hi Mindie,
    I’m just curious where you got the picture of the Snow Hill Municipal Building with the firemen in front? I’m pretty sure that is my great-grandfather in the driver’s seat of the fire truck and I would love to have a copy! I have a few others but not that particular one. Thank you! 🙂

    1. Hi Lisa. That image was in the book I wrote about Snow Hill back in 2007. I’m sure it either came from the Snow Hill Library collection or from the Julia A. Purnell Museum. I scanned many of the photos I collected from those two sources. It very well may be your grandfather in the driver’s seat.

  2. Hi,

    I just paid for the Snow Hill Ghost Walk on March 15. I was wondering how I get the “tickets”? Are they mailed to me? Will you send me a confirmation email?


    Aimee and Jeff

  3. As the new owners of Chanceford, we are looking forward to meeting you, & attending your tour! Doug & Fran Wight
