Haunted Maritimes – a Ghostly Waterman’s Town
There’s no place on the Eastern Shore quite like the City of Crisfield. 300 years ago it was built on a bed of oysters and started as a watermen’s town with most of its population earning a living by harvesting the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay. It was once known as the Seafood Capital of the World.
Today, the waterman culture still prevails and a guest on the ghost walk can soak up that culture whilst listening to stories of sea captains, Governors, seafood barons, merchants, doctors, millionaires, philanthropists and movie stars.
The walk included the Orrie Lee Tawes House famous for having strange things pop up in photographic images taken of it. Check out the one our gallery. Hear about the heir to Crown Cork and Seal, the World War One Veteran doctor, the last captain to pilot a commercial schooner across the ocean, the orphan turned movie star turned author who met death in a firey crash and the Governor who is the only person in Maryland history to occupy all three seats on the Board of Public Works.
Crisfield is an amazing town with rich ghost stories. Don’t miss this ghost walk.
