Enjoy the refreshing autumn air and get into the spirit of the season with Watermark in October. Special historic hauntings, offered in partnership with Historic Annapolis, will take you through the dark alleyways, spooky side streets and lesser-known haunted sites of Annapolis’s creaky Old Town.

A feisty ghost guide will share real journal entries and newspaper articles about what scared people in the early 18th century. A stop in historic Hogshead is also included, where you’ll be immersed in the stories of those who lived in Annapolis during the Revolutionary War. Hear tales of spirits that linger in the mist and explore one of Annapolis’ best-known cemeteries. Special Historic Hauntings takes you back to a time of superstition and legend. This visit will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings in October as well as Sunday, October 30, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:10 p.m. Tickets are $26/adult and $15/child. For reservations, go to: watermarkjourney.com/events/special-historic-hauntings/.

On two select dates in October, Watermark® partners with Historic Inns of Annapolis to offer Sup & Spook. Built between 1772 and 1782, the Maryland Inn has been privy to centuries of Annapolis history. It’s a perfect spot for dinner and a tour with a ghost guide. The 3-course prix fixe menu will include four selections of starters and non-alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the bar. A ghost tour guide will join you for dessert and share stories about the Maryland Inn ghosts. Then, you’ll follow your spirited guide on a leisurely stroll through a small section of historic Annapolis teeming with haunted stories. Stop at spooky locations to hear stories told with the dramatic zeal of those who have passed. Haunted sites include Reynold’s Tavern, Church Circle, and Maryland State House. This tour will take place on Thursday, October 6 and Thursday, October 20, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $95/guest. For reservations, go to: watermarkjourney.com/events/sup-spook/.

Both tours are available for private bookings, ideal for adult groups, tour operators and corporate outings. Please contact Watermark® at 410-268-7601 for more information and to book.
