Salisbury – The Haunted Crossroads of Delmarva
Salisbury, Maryland Ghosts ! Feel like someone is “watching you” in the deserted plaza? Hear about the phantom spirits seen at night in the buildings downtown and walking the plaza. Learn about the “ghost of the crossroads” where two major highways intersect and a strange combination of spirits come together. There are spirits of Civil War soldiers, firemen, slaves, lovers and an angry ghost who makes mischief in the old shirt factory. Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of the “Salisbury Man” who moves in an out of buildings on the plaza.
Experience the tingly feeling of standing in front of the old Wicomico Courthouse – the site of 4 murders -hear the stories of voices, shadows, and faceless apparitions that are still lingering there. Hear about the crowd of voices in the old City Hall and the University ghost. Visit a sweet little old graveyard in the center of town by the light of the moon.
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.
