Hanging Hole

In the Pocomoke Forest is a house that has a history of a man being lynched. People say that the man spirit roams the area and that he can be seen on moonlit nights.

Baltimore School of Massage

Wild field swings indicate much activity.

The people who work late at the school hear voices of ghostly spirits. The building seems to be haunted by many ghosts.

One of the ghosts in the front part of the school likes to make a thumping sound. This ghost has drained the batteries in ghost hunting equipment when groups come to investigate. The ghost followed one investigator out of the building and caused an EMF detector gauge to swing back and forth quickly before killing the battery.

The building at one time was the social security office where people came to file for death benefits.

Assateague Island Ghosts

It's not just for the horses!

Many ships have sunk off the coast of Asseteauge Island and Ocean City.

Witchcraft and Molly Dyer

    part of Old Jail Museum, St. Mary's County Historical Society

Beware the quiet ones

An 875-pound boulder sits in front of the Historical Society in Leonardtown. Molly Dyer, the accused witch, was found with her hand frozen to this rock after she was driven from her home on one of the coldest nights of the year --the townsfolk had burned down her cabin. Molly froze to death that night, and she was found with her hand frozen onto the rock. When they removed her body, the impressions of her knees and hands were left at the scene, firmly etched in the rock. This happened more than three hundred years ago and you can still see her hand-print on the rock.

Molly's cabin was located in an area that is now known as Molly Dyer's Run. Her ghostly apparition has been seen floating over the land near where she had lived. The large boulder was moved in 1975 to the front of the Historical Society Jail Museum. People report feeling uncomfortable around the rock, sometimes complaining about aches and pains. Camera malfunctions are often reported around the rock.

The Jail Museum is located at Business Route 5 at 41625 Old Courthouse Drive in Leonardtown. FMI 301-475-2467 or see

Howard Chapel Rd

    part of Sunshine/Unity area

Howard Chapel Rd bridge over the Patuxent River

There is a family cemetery located 1/4 from the bridge along Howard Chapel Rd at Elton Farm Rd. Used between 1892-1939, about 18 grave sites are there. By the dates on the tombstones, there are lots of young people burried there. I have heard by several people that have seen things near the bridge down the road. There are no houses around & very little traffic. I was there last night doing a training drill & had a feeling of being watched the whole time. It's very very dark there at night. There is a parking area next to the bridge.

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
