18 Stops Along the Most Haunted Street on the Eastern Shore

-Take a walk down Haunted High Street in Historic Cambridge – notably the most haunted street on the Eastern Shore. Hear about the ghosts who haunt and strange events that have happened in just a few short blocks. Soldiers, Governors, jilted women, Oystermen, an eccentric cat lady, a dying daughter, slain war heroes, suicidal bankers, murderous merchants, laughing children and a one-legged sea captain are some of the spirits that hang around High Street.
-A night-time walk on High Street can be chilling when you’re listening to stories about a farmer who murders a group of Indian workers and has his family cursed or a Confederate soldier who has been seen in the home and yard of the oldest house in Cambridge. There are ten ghost stories associated with these homes found in the Edward H. Nabb Research Center Folklore Collection and many of those stories are repeated in various books on ghosts and legends. These aren’t stories of scary ghosts that torment the occupants of the houses. They seem to be stories of spirits who are connected to the community somehow. They don’t want to leave, even though they are dead.

Sites On The Cambridge Ghost Walk include Christ Church and graveyard, the Richardson Maritime Museum (old bank building), the Dorchester County Courthouse, Long Wharf (stories of pirates and phantom ships), and seven of the beautiful homes on historic High Street including the oldest house in Cambridge – the Josiah Bayly House which is featured on the homepage of the Chesapeake Ghost Walk website. Guests will walk from the Richardson Maritime Museum on Poplar Street, past the Dorchester Center for the Arts and Courthouse, and continue past the homes of Governor Charles Goldsborough, the Leonard Hotel, the Maynadier House and the LaCompte House. All these and more have amazing stories.
