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.
Our Tours are not recommended for children under 6.
The Friday tours offer different ghost stories from the Saturday tours so be sure to book one of each to hear ALL the ghost stories about Ellicott City (the order of the tours does not matter).
