Dorchester County Ghost Tour
Visit historic, haunted sites in Dorchester, Maryland
May 16, 2010 (presentation, walking tour and bus tour)

Cost - $25 per person - Advanced Registration Required
Downloadable Registration Form

Dorchester County has some of the most haunted sites in Maryland. 

Many will of those sites associated with hauntings and ghostly tales of the dead will be included in Mindie Burgoyne’s Dorchester County Ghost Tour. Burgoyne’s successful book, Haunted Eastern Shore drew so much interest from ghost hunters and ghost-story lovers that she has agreed –at the request of her readers - to do several tours on the Eastern Shore, highlighting some of the sites from her book.

This tour will feature several sites from the book:

Shoal Creek Manor (once stood where the Cambridge Wastewater Treatment Plant now stands)

Greenbrier Swamp -  haunt of the infamous Big Lizz apparition reportedly seen my many who visited the swamp - some never returned

Suicide Bridge near Secretary

Richardson Maritime Museum

Lower Dorchester - Great Marsh Bridge, Hoopers Island, Fishing Creek and Bucktown


The tour begins with guests meeting at the City of Cambridge Council Chambers (located between the library and the old fire house) where Mindie Burgoyne will give a short presentation about sites on the tour. “I like to include more history than spookiness or sensationalism” Burgoyne states. “I’d rather give the historic background on the site itself, then offer a little bit about the legends and haunted tales associated it. And then add, if possible, what people say today about the site being haunted or being host to unexplained events.” After the presentation, guests will take a short walking tour through Cambridge, then board the bus and drive through some of the most beautiful countryside on the East Coast.  This drive will pass many sites believed to be haunted - or associated with haunted tales - including Greenbrier swamp and the sites mentioned above in Lower Dorchester.  At each of the haunted sites where Burgoyne will offer commentary. Guests will not leave the bus or tour sites on foot.  The bus will return to the Cambridge by 5 pm.

Mindie Burgoyne has been able to attract close to 4000 fans to her Facebook Fan Page for Haunted Eastern Shore. She attributes the interest in the ghost tours and the unexpected success of the book (first printing sold out in five weeks) to her ability to build up the fan base through social media. She sees the spin-off successes, like the ghost tours as a result of enthusiastic fans being able to interact with each other on a topic they’re crazy about. “Fans have been organizing their own tours to the sites mentioned in the book, and I’ve had several requests to guide ghost tours, and the first tour we did in Crisfield was so successful, we've added Dorchester."

The Dorchester tour is being co-sponsored by the City of Cambridge. Cost per person is $25 and advanced registration is required. Seating is limited to forty people, and nearly half the spots are already sold.
