Why is Baltimore So Haunted?

Baltimore has a fascinating and haunting history from its first settlers, the Native Americans, but the real fun history began when William Fell founded the waterfront neighborhood in Baltimore known as Fells Point in 1763. Fells Point was a shipbuilding and commercial center that was prominent to the War of 1812 with its schooner-building vessels that were known for their incredible speed and handling.

 

In 1798 Fort McHenry was built in another Baltimore neighborhood called Locus Point. Fort McHenry was home to many deaths and tragedies from the War of 1812, its use as a prison during the Civil War, and a hospital during the Spanish flu plague in 1918. The most prominent influence the fort is noted for is the influence in the writing of our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner. All wars aside, Baltimore was also home to the world’s most renowned writer and poet, Edgar Allan Poe.

The dark writer lived in Baltimore when he met and married his 13-year-old first cousin Virginia who died 11 years into their marriage, devastating Poe but also giving way to some of his most famous writings.

More a mystery than his writings is Poe’s death. He died in a Baltimore hospital after being found on the streets delirious and feverish, and the mystery to the history behind it is intriguing. He is buried in Westminster Burial grounds which has its own mysterious history itself!

THE MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN BALTIMORE, MD

Max's Taphouse

As a rowdy seaport town, local pubs once held a special place in the city's culture. The building known as Max's Taphouse, in the harbor-side neighborhood of Fell's Point, dates back to the city's early days when it operated as a slaughterhouse and brothel. Aside from an impressive selection of beer, Max's is a must-see for the stories and fables about the haunted history of the old building.

The Horse You Came in on Saloon

This saloon, established in 1775, The Horse You Came in on Saloon is the oldest continually operating in the United States. As if that title isn't impressive enough, it's also the only bar in Maryland to have survived the prohibition era of the 1920s. All this is to say that the building can tell a tale or two. As can the famed American gothic writer, Edgar Allen Poe, who is said to have stopped in here as his last-known destination before succumbing to a mysterious death.

Rye

As another Fell's Point institution, Rye brings Baltimore's history to light with its innovative craft cocktail menu. The Prohibition-era drinks and repurposed industrial decor take Rye's visitors back to when Baltimore got its name as “Charm City.” Its reputation from nautical misadventure makes it the perfect spot to hear a local ghost story or two.
