Baltimore is known for its Midwestern style eccentric buildings and personalities including filmmaker John Waters and railroad tycoon Thomas Winans that built luxurious European mansions in downtown Baltimore. The city is full of home-grown old style psychic parlors with charming electric signs glowing in the windows. This is a city where old-style Tarot reading and palmistry is big! Baltimore also has it's share of hoodoo and voodoo priests and priests, Santeria practitioners and practitioners of magic that call themselves reverends.
It is also known for its weird ghosts including the famous abandoned house in the Black Woods which is said to be haunted by a former psychic who was persecuted by her neighbors for being witch! If you find her dark abandoned home in the woods and dare to venture to go down into the spooky basement, she will kill you! Needless to say this is one of thus places in Maryland that is great to hold a seance or test your psychic ability to contact the dead.
Another famous mystical place is Edgar Allan Poe's house. Not only is it said to be inhabited by the spirit of Poe but also by a large female spirit dressed in gray. Edgar Poe is buried on the grounds of the famous Westminster church which was featured on "Sightings - The Ghost Report." Many of heard voices wailing in the graveyard of Baltimore's Westminster Church.
Aside from local fortune tellers and psychics, there is the Theosophical Society in Maryland, Inc that presents all types of supernatural studies in its universal, non-denominational temple that is devoted to exploring and learning about everything mystical, magical and spiritual. The society has held many interesting events in its time including a lecture on "Jesus As Mystic" (that looks on the Biblical figure more as a channeled), lucid dreaming and talks about famous mystical sites such as Stone Hinge and Manchu Picchu.
