Ghost Town

Photography by Douglas Via | Posted on 10.07.14 – Feature

This is the time of the year when haunted hay rides and other varieties of elaborate, manmade scares, complete with Hollywood-quality special effects, pop up on area farms and other locales. But what about a “real” ghost story, at least one that relies more on legend than a tube of fake blood? There is no shortage of those tales in Frederick, as you will find on the following pages.

Special thanks goes to Ron Angleberger at Maryland Heritage Tours for helping select these sites and providing background about their haunted reputations.
