The Ghosts of Savage Mill

Howard County Tourism, which sponsors the Ellicott City tours, is starting nighttime walks through the old cotton mill turned antique and retail mart. Historical tours of the paranormal, researched and written by University of Maryland Baltimore County professor Mark Croatti, highlight the spirits of the people who lived, worked and died at the mill as well as a startling series of events that store owners and artisans have witnessed. Ghost Walks will be held at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays during October and November. Savage Mill, 8600 Foundry St., Savage. "Ye Haunted History of Old Ellicott City" tours continue 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through November. Meet at the Main Street Visitor Center, 8267 Main St., Ellicott City.
