Baltimore, MD is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Horse You Came In On Saloon. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.


Over 40 years ago, Howard Gerber was looking for sites to open his dream bar. He chose Thames Street and a sturdy dormer-roofed building that had been a tavern for most of its 200 years. 


It was the last place Edgar Allen Poe was seen before his 1849 mysterious death. It is said his ghost has been seen walking down the street toward the saloon. Poe is known to sip cognac that bartenders leave out for him. Sometimes, the cash register drawer will mysteriously keep opening without the staff initiating it. The employees of the tavern have nicknamed their ghost "Edgar."  

 Late one night, two employees were closing up and locked the front door. Suddenly, a beer mug sitting on top of the bar shattered into a pile of broken glass for no reason at all. It became even stranger when the bartender showed the manager a picture he took the night before. It was of a shattered beer mug that exploded in the same place on the bar just as he was closing up.
