Ghost of Caspar Tromp

well, at least his name wasn't Donald...

Solitude Farm

A graceful flourish of the hat from a kindly Confederate ghost.

In the early 1840's, William Peck cleared land and built a farmhouse using slave labor. The house started as a L-shaped structure, two stories tall. A dining room was added later, changing the shape of the house. At the turn of the century, another wood addition was made to the house.

By this time, several owners had lived there. The house was purchased by Mrs. Lowe who lived there a number of years. Her family owned the Lowe's hardware company, which became the national chain.

Check-ins & Findings +

  • Luficer -- 9 Dec 2015 -- A group of ten met in Ellicott City for fresh-roasted coffee, dessert and exploration of various spiritual topics. Details
  • Thistle Mill at Ilchester, Md. -- 4 Nov 2015 -- Quick jaunt to site of infamous paperworks, spirit sightings, gruesome deaths, poisonous chemicals, strange goings-on, long dark interest. Numerous photos of the now demolished (and excavated) mill and surrounding area. Liz' rods were wildly communicative (as usual), this time with a spirit identifying itself as "BZZ". We wonder if this was the suicidal Robert Buzzard identified by Lonster in his investigations of the mill. See the old report in EGQ1
