Haunted tour of Lower Dorchester County – trace the haunted back roads and waterways once traveled by Harriet Tubman and others in old Dorchester.

Some say that spirits of Harriet Tubman and the old enslaved community still haunt the fields and swamps of Lower Dorchester County. Hear the stories about the Underground Railroad. See the plantation where Harriet Tubman worked, and the local store (still standing) where she was injured as a child.

Hear the stories of the spirits who still linger at Blackwater, the quiet songs of enslaved Africans in the fields, the vanishing of two people in the same fishing village, two brothers chained in an attic, floating coffins, phantom ships, the Seven Gates of Hell, the most haunted street in Maryland.
 

Did you know that the marshy, forested Blackwater region of Dorchester County has had two people vanish without a trace, coffins floating up to the door, a wildmen seen in the marsh, two brothers locked in an attic, a location called The Seven Gates of Hell, and a UFO that was seen by scores of people — in some cases only feet from the hood of their cars?  Hear these and over a dozen more stories about the haunted landscape of lower Dorchester County in the comfort of a luxury bus (w/ restroom on board)
