  1. I have been there but only when a lot of people were present and it was loud. However, the area, Fells Point, has 2 walking ghost tours. Don’t miss them as they are pretty good. And visit the grave on a side street a few blocks up..

    Also haunted are Bertha’s, Leadbetters, I think Cats Eye, and many other locations.
