Uncover a History of Murder and The Macabre
In the sunshine, Baltimore seems quaint, unassuming, and idyllic… yet it hides a gruesome and bloody past that is all but distant. Mired in ambition, black deeds, and devilish deals, men willing to sell their innocence for pennies built a foundation steeped in corruption. The colonial port became a rowdy shipbuilding center where death seemed to always lurk in the shadows of the docks, from the days of the colonies to the time of Edgar Allan Poe.
Mobtown has always been a violent city. Founded as a busy port and shipbuilding yard, Baltimore rapidly became a rowdy and seedy pirate’s nest. With a history full of sad stories and tragic deaths dating back to the 1600’s, residents have always preferred settling fights with their fists and covering the streets with the blood of riots and angry mobs. Their victims tragically still haunt Baltimore today, victims of murder and uneding war sagas.. Investigate chilling tales of their desperate last moments and hear their ghostly pleas for justice echoing in the wind.
Join Baltimore Ghosts as we walk through the haunted waterfront and hear spine-tingling tales of ruthless pirates, unsolved deaths, and the bloodthirsty knaves that have used Baltimore’s bars, brothels and boarding houses as hunting and haunted grounds for the last 200 years.

Why is Baltimore so Haunted?
In Charm City, if you feel like you’re being watched, you most certainly are. The peering, restless eyes of little Molly on her window pouncing her red ball to the beat of a fevered heart will not feel the least bit charming when it sends chills shooting up your spine. No less terrifying is an encounter with the diseased nurse of the harbor who, in search of Warton sailors to entrap, left in her wake a trail of misery and death.
The Baltimore ghost tour takes you deep into the darker side of this city’s already sordid underbelly. On an adventure through streets still haunted by the ghosts of bloodthirsty cutthroats, murderous working girls, and half-dead sailors — fiends waiting to shanghai the nearest unwary soul.
From the scored pirates that used the city as their playing ground to devastating bouts of plagues to the inferno that became the infamous Baltimore Fire of 1904, you’ll hear firsthand accounts and experience every tale with expert guides chillingly describing each story’s most ghastly details. Listen to tales of ghosts that continually stalk the city streets each night, sad and tragic victims who burned alive or suffered the torments of war and disease.
Embark on a ghost tour through the city’s darkest depths to hear the terrifying tales of these poor souls and encounter the apparitions of the ones who refused to leave.
