Georgetown has been an international port of entry since 1732. Walk with us down along seaport Georgetown’s haunted harbor, where maritime ghosts abound. Historic hauntings of pirates, lost ships and lovelorn ghosts from watery graves are our specialty! Most famous in Georgetown’s haunted maritime History are the War of 1812’s schooner Patriot, lost at sea with Theodosia Burr Alston: and the Federal flagship Harvest Moon, whose paddle-steaming days ended in ghostly finality on the floor of the Georgetown harbor.
