I had what my husband and I believe, was a ghostly encounter when we stayed there for our 11th wedding anniversary. Many believe the ghost of Kitty Knight still roams the halls of this old house. She had a big role in the war of 1812. So what is this famous Marylander’s story? Is Kitty a kind “ghost”?
First of all, Kitty was a strong lady. She actually took on the British, when they invaded the Eastern Shore during the War of 1812. Their goal was to burn down houses and communities close to the shore to protect their soldiers as they moved about the Chesapeake area. Kitty stood her ground in Georgetown Maryland and pleaded with Admiral Cockburn.
The Ghost of Kitty Knight has been experienced by the guests at the bed and breakfast. Some have said they heard the opening and closing of doors, lighting lights, phone calls being made, and rocking in her favorite chair. Some have felt her presence. Others claim to have seen her shadowy figure. Especially in Room 4. My husband and I stayed in the suite in 2007, upstairs room. When I began to dose off at bedtime, I heard water running in the bathroom and a baby crying. I went to check and there was nothing. Then at 3:00 a.m., the electric went off in our room. The clock was flashing and the light I left on in the bathroom went off. See the photo gallery below.
