The Chestertown House Tour
, the day that Chestertown opens its doors! One of the longest running historic house tours in Maryland, with a dozen or more properties open to ticket holders, this is a lovely way to spend a fall afternoon in the exquisite historic district of Chestertown, named by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as a Distinctive Destination.

Ghost Walks of Historic Chestertown
, in which we show that there’s more to history then meets the eye with a perfect combination of history and haunts. Guides will lead ticket holders through the darkened streets of Chestertown by candlelit lantern, sharing strange accounts collected from historic district home and business owners; true tales of murder and mayhem; and folklore that still lingers from the region’s British and African heritage. October schedule or by appointment throughout the year.
