St Michaels Ghost Walk

St. Michaels in Talbot County is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Eastern Shore. A Ghost Walk through this town at night is a jolting experience, because these ghosts are very present to visitors. (Don’t worry, they’re friendly). Historic St. Michaels doesn’t just show off it’s collection of Colonial and Victorian architecture. If you look closely, you can see and experience the presence of some of the old residents, visitors, slaves, prostitutes, sailors and soldiers. St. Michaels is thick with history and spirits.
