Frederick is known as a very historic city, but not all of its history has been pleasant. Not everyone who died in this city died peacefully and when day turns to night, an additional population arises to inhabit it. Come join us to learn more about those who can't quite let this world go.

Tour guides dressed in period attire lead visitors on a 90-minute, 1.2 mile excursion through the city's dark streets and alleyways for an informative, yet hauntingly fun adventure, in search of the infamous, the unknown and the unexplained.

Politically savvy and defiant citizens, patriots from the Revolutionary War, beckoning soldiers from the Civil War, unknown actors from the stage, and countless others are just a few of Frederick's enduring mysteries awaiting to be discovered.

But before we begin our journey, we will dine at Ruby Tuesday for some good food and conversation.
