The historic city of Baltimore has much to offer guests! Food, history, and haunted places!
Things to do
Green Mount Cemetery
Green Mount Cemetery has the graves of John Wilkes Booth (unmarked, but they will tell you where he is and you can put a heads-up penny on his grave!), Johnny Eck, the circus performer is there, Johns Hopkins and of course the co-creator of the Ouija Board – Elijah J. Bond! His grave marker has a Ouija Board carved on!
Established in 1763, Fell’s Point is a city, state and National Historic District and boasts over 161 buildings on the National Register, including the oldest standing residence in Baltimore City, the Robert Long House, which is open for tours by reservation. The neighborhood is steeped in history – the streets of Fell’s Point are paved with Belgian blocks, the original stone bricks brought over by trade ships from Europe. Walk them along Broadway and Thames Street where you’ll also see numbers carved into the curbs to mark placements for outdoor market stalls generations ago. In the same area stands Broadway Market, a year-round indoor market built in 1786. Fell’s Point is also the last known sight of Edgar Allan Poe before his mysterious death. Fells Point has ghost tours and a great PUB CRAWL! It is 1.5 Miles (2.5 km) from the hotel and is the drinking center of Baltimore City! You can take the scenic Water Taxi over to Fells Point too!
Dr. Gloom’s Crypt of Curiosities
This is what happened to the majority of my collection! True story! I donated my Fiji Mermaid, my vampire skeleton, Hand of Glory and a few other items!
The Poe House
The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum, located at 203 North Amity St. in Baltimore, Maryland, is the former home of American writer Edgar Allan Poe in the 1830s. Definitely worth a visit!
The Nutshell Studies
In the early half of the 20th century, forensic science was non-existent. Police coroners did not have to be medically trained and crime-scene investigation was minimal. All this would be changed, however, by an elderly Chicago socialite with a penchant for dollhouses and death.
This simple convenience store sits on the location where the Ouija board was named and has the plaque to prove it.
The USS Constellation
I did a show here with the Discover Channel at this famously haunted ship! ‘Tis right in the Inner Harbor.
