Cheers to a haunted weekend in Howard County! Enjoy our haunted ghost tours, costume parades, haunted houses, and much more. There is so many spooky things the family can experience this weekend, so why not get out and make some memories! #explorehocomd 

EC Ghost Tours
We double dare you to walk the streets and learn more about the past inhabitants of this historic milltown — one of the oldest and most haunted locales in America! The lady in white of Tonge Row, the Civil War soldier who stalks the lower end of Main Street, and the vigilant firefighter of Station 2 invite you to hear their stories during our frightfully fun ghost tours.

Historic Savage Mill Ghost Tours 
Discover the Mill’s haunted history, where restless spirits continue to roam the halls!
