For your spooky pleasure,
here's a haunted hotel Baltimore. Fell's Point, Maryland is the
original deep water seaport in Baltimore
and became incorporated into the city in 1773. Being a seaport, it
attracted many immigrants as well as sailors who took their liberties
there. Presently, there are many shops and pubs that line the streets
of Fell's Point, which makes it a wonderful destination to get away and
Back in the day, the area was a rough neighborhood consisting of
shipyards, warehouses, brothels and saloons. The lifestyle of a
merchant seaman back then was less than sanitary and, shall we say,
unsafe and lacking in culture and refinement, to put it politely.
Therefore, the Mission Women's Auxiliary built The Anchorage, which was
to be a boarding house for these fellows. It was intended as a home
away from home with a Christian influence, to create a safe haven in
the port. Later, the YMCA continued the tradition until 1955 when The
Anchorage began to be occupied by a series of tenants and eventually
fell into disrepair.
It was in 1985 that The Anchorage buildings were renovated and
reimmerged as the Admiral Fell Inn. This haunted hotel in
Baltimore is now a member of the
National Trust for Historic Preservation, one of the Historic Hotels of
haunted hotel in Baltimore is a European style hotel that has
described as more like the
home of a well-to-do resident, than a commercial establishment. Guests
are greeted by ghost story tellers and ghost tours are available. There
is dining on the property, as well as a breakfast nook, pub and
ballroom. Even pets are welcome at this haunted hotel in Baltimore.
Some of the reputed ghost sightings:
One legend speaks of a scientist who saw the
apparition of a nurse walk
through his wall after being awakened by the creaking of his room's
floorboards. He was staying in Room 218.
One of the housekeeping staff reported being
feeling coldspots on
different occasions while working in room 413. She said it felt as
though a slight breeze was blowing against her face or arms, like
someone had walked close by her. She also reported feeling as though
someone had put their hand on her shoulder.
The ghosts of the Admiral Fell seem to be a
merry-making bunch, as the
area has been a pub-lined seaport virtually throughout its history.
During Hurricane Isabel, the entire hotel was evacuated save the hotel
managers. Despite the hotel's vacancy, one manager reported hearing
loud noises upstairs and the sounds of gaiety and laughter, but of
course, there were no humans in the area.
Even the staff are merry at this haunted hotel in Baltimore appears
than spooky. It appears they attempt to make their haunting
light-hearted so as to appeal to everyone. To learn more about The
