Nurses are a seriously fearless bunch, and autumn is the perfect time for a thrill-seeking, ghostly adventure! Here are 5 spooky places for travel nurses to visit in Maryland…if you dare!

The Maryland State House is said to be filled with spirits. Several locals have reported seeing a ghastly revolutionary soldier on the grounds, as well as the ghost of a man who fell from the top of the building trying to make repairs.

This house built in 1739 is said to be haunted by two families. Dare to take a tour of this historic home and hear children’s voices, phantom footsteps, and witness objects move on their own.

Fletchertown Road, Bowie

An urban legend tells the tale of a mad scientist who turned himself into an evil half-man, half-goat at the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center. Some say he murdered the townsfolk with an ax and, overcome with the thirst of blood, ate their remains. It sounds silly but something about this artist’s interpretation of the goat man is so, so creepy.

Fort McHenry, Baltimore


Fort McHenry was used as a prison for Confederate soldiers during the Civil War, and as a hospital for wounded soldiers during World War I. Visitors often report feelings of being watched and shadowy figures roaming the halls.

Large orbs and unexplained sounds often make this beautiful lake a creepy place to visit, especially as the evening approaches.
