Historic Hauntings Tours
Fridays and Saturdays in October
This October, instead of heading to the usual “haunted house” full of hokey tricks, come with Historic Annapolis and Watermark on a ghost tour of Maryland’s capital city. This special Historic Hauntings tour takes guests inside the William Paca House, one of Annapolis’s most storied old mansions, and into its “sick room,” where many entered but some never escaped alive. Only our ghoulish guides can bring you inside this imposing brick home after dark. No October visit to Annapolis is complete without a haunted tale or two!

Registration Information:
Friday and Saturday: 7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Tour leaves from the Historic Annapolis Museum, 99 Main Street
$20 for Adults
$14 for Children 3-11
Free for Children 2 and under
Reservations must be made through Watermark at www.watermarkjourney.com or 410-268-7601 x 100

Celebrating Maryland Emancipation
Saturday, October 25 – Saturday, November 1, 2014

Follow the Fleet

“Follow the Fleet” is a new website developed by Historic Annapolis to tell the story of war and peace in the Chesapeake Bay region from April 1814 to April 1815. It gives special attention to Maryland, its capital city, and a few people, both famous and ordinary, whose lives were changed by the events of that year. One of the individuals highlighted in “Follow the Fleet” is William ‘Rolla’ Ross, a 14-year-old fugitive slave whose exciting story is also featured in the Historic Annapolis exhibit Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake. Just as Annapolitans anxiously followed the movements of the British fleet as its ships prowled the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributary rivers 200 years ago, visitors to “Follow the Fleet” can track the dramatic military action that occurred all around the region during the final months of the War of 1812.

To visit the website, please visit www.followthefleet.org
