Want to know the real story behind some of the most haunted places in Queen Anne, Kent, and Caroline counties? Hop aboard our ghost tour bus and hear Mindie Burgoyne, author of Haunted Eastern Shore: Ghostly Tales from East of the Chesapeake, as she guides guests on a tour through the Shore’s haunted counties.

 Discover the tale of the strange man mounted on a horse who is often seen approaching the Kent Manor Inn. Find out which bedroom is haunted by Kitty Knight at her famous colonial home. Pass by the site of the famous Cosden Murder Farm and the White House Farm – famous for its bloody stone. Find the grave of Tallulah Bankhead where she’s been known to appear in one of the most haunted cemeteries in Maryland. See the bridge where the ghost of Tench Tilghman has been spotted passing by with lantern in hand. Then pass the site where Annie Belle Carter fell to her death and has since been seen dancing across the lawn of her childhood home in Denton. Visit the Denton Cemetery where the ghost of Marshall Price – the lynched murderer of young Sallie Dean – has been seen dancing on his own grave, and visit the jail where Wish Shepherd has tormented prisoners and law enforcement staff for almost 100 years.

Guests will hear the history of these buildings and sites; listen to the legendary tales of ghosts, haunting and stories of the dead; and experience many of the sites up-close-and-personal. These are just a few of the haunting tales that will enthrall passengers!

Passengers will meet at the Wye Mills campus of Chesapeake College. Course fee is $32. Sunday, 10/9/11, 1-5 pm. For more information or to register, contact Marci Leach at 410-827-5833 or mleach@chesapeake.edu.

THE AUTHOR - TOUR GUIDE
Mindie Burgoyne has been able to attract over 5000 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, then Caroline and now we're working with Chesapeake College to cover the Upper Shore counties."



NOTE - BOOKS WILL BE FOR SALE: Copies of Haunted Eastern Shore: Ghostly Tales from East of the Chesapeake will be available for sale at the presentation prior to the walking and bus tours. Copies are $17.99 + MD tax = $19.06. Mindie Burgoyne will be happy to sign copies.
