Perhaps you’re looking for something spooky to give you a chill and raise the hair on the back of your neck. Learn about the Frederick County residents and visitors of the past, some who might still be sticking around.

Ghost Tours of Frederick will take you on a 1.2-mile tour of six to seven haunted sites in downtown Frederick covering 300 years of the city’s history.

Tour guides will lead small groups through 90 minutes of tales of war and revenge. Those who attend a tour might meet Barbara Fritchie, as she continues to guard her house from Confederate soldiers. Or at least hear her story.

Along the tour, guides will take their guests past a house shared by two families, one of whom is dead. They’ll also walk to Court House Square, where executions were once held. Legend says a curse on the area still exists.

Make sure to also listen to stories about the Trivoli theatre in downtown Frederick. Take a seat, but be careful, someone might already be sitting there.

The ghost tours run through out the year, and while recommendations are always recommended, they are required during October.

Tours are not suited for children due to the graphic nature of some of the stories, including ones about young children. The tours start at Brewer’s Alley in downtown Frederick.

A full schedule can be found at marylandghosttours.com.
