Halloween Ghost Tour

The ghosts and tales of the dead of East Dorchester County will be the focus of the Halloween Haunted Tour sponsored by Chesapeake College.  Mindie Burgoyne, author of Haunted Eastern Shore: Ghostly Tales from East of the Chesapeake, will lead a tour group on a bus tour of haunted sites.   

Sites on the tour will include the Patty Cannon properties at Johnson's Crossroads in Reliance.  See where Patty Cannon's house originally stood and identify the suspected property site for Johnson's Tavern where kidnapped free Blacks and slaves were once shackled in wait for Patty's terrifying ride south into the slave markets.  See the fields where the bones of her murdered victims were uncovered eventually leading her arrest and alleged suicide in the Sussex County jail.  Woodland Ferry (previously Cannon Ferry), Cannon Hall and Maggie's Bridge in Sussex County DE will also be on the tour.

Also on the tour - sites associated with legends of  the Indians who occupied the lands near Vienna, Ghost Island near Henry's Crossroads. And what ghost tour wouldn't include Decoursey Bridge, the place where Big Lizz - the Eastern Shore's most famous ghost - calls people into the swamp to find the yet undiscovered treasure of her long dead master?  If time permits, the bus tour will travel down through Blackwater and visit lower Dorchester where the Wild Men of Andrews lived, and Frances Wingate disappeared.

Guests will hear the history of these long gone Dorchester countians and the sites associated with their spirits.   They'll 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 Cambridge campus of Chesapeake College. Course fee is $32. Sunday, 10/23/11 from 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 5400 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.
