Christmas Care

fort howard haunted dungeons 2022

Program Chairperson:   Tim Dodge ([email protected])

Season:   Christmas Season

Description:   Welcome to the Community Christmas Care webpage!  In 2010, the ESP Rec-Council created this program, in cooperation with Edgemere and Chesapeake Terrace Elementary Schools, to support local families in need during the holiday season.  In addition to various ESP Programs who have volunteered to Adopt families during the holiday season, this program is also open to organizations and individual families looking to share their Christmas Spirit with those in need.  Since 2011, we have supported over 100 local families. 

Here is how it works... our local elementary school guidance counselors send us the names and family information of those in need at their respective schools.  They also send us a wish list of gift items for the kids.  Families, programs or organizations who chose to adopt a family(ies) typically provide something along the lines of:

- Toys/Gifts for the kids (priority)

- Clothing for the kids (priority)

- Food and household items for the parent(s)

- Gift cards- and sometimes gift items for the parents themselves.

The school guidance counselor also asks each family being adopted if it is okay to contact them directly.  If so, upon contacting them, adopting families can deliver their wrapped gifts to them directly. Otherwise, they can drop them off at the school.  Either way, YOU are making a HUGE difference in the lives of children!  We are all in this together as a community... THANK YOU for your consideration!  If you are interested in adopting a family or just want more information, contact the Program Chairperson.

"we had a great time shopping and can't wait to deliver the gifts, I feel blessed just to be able to do this." -Linda

"I have already spoke with the Mom to confirm all of the info and we are meeting on Christmas Eve Eve to get her the gifts so she can put them under the tree for her family. We are also going to get a food basket.  She is very dear and this has been a joy for our family.  We traditionally do generic gifts to organizations but this has been more personal for us" -Lisa

Program Facebook Page:   FOFHP

Description:   The Edgemere Sparrows Point Recreation Council has initiated a program called Friends of Fort Howard Park. The intent of the program is to improve the park grounds, expand the range of activities, and to make visitors aware of the historical significance of the property.Some of the proposed enhancements for the park include historical panels at each of the surviving gun batteries, guided walking tours, marked trails and volunteer service opportunities.  If you are interested in finding out more about Friends of Fort Howard Park or if you have suggestions for other ways to improve the park, please contact the program committee at 410-887-7529 or email at [email protected].

The first project the program took on was the posting of a historical panel in the park's bulletin board. We got it designed, printed, approved by the council, and posted in December. It describes the purpose and construction of the fort as an army coastal defense installation back at the turn of the last century.We'd like to erect similar panels at various locations in the park highlighting the gun batteries and other aspects of the fort's history.  Click on the files below to see some of the panels and the Fort Howard Park walk-thru guide.

Fort Howard

Last weekend, my family and I visited Fort Howard in Baltimore, Maryland . Fort Howard was created to protect the port of Baltimore from an attack from the sea.

Its connection with the most massive invasion of the United States on the morning of September 12, 1814, is a historical significance.

Park Hours : Sunrise to sunset

The park is closed during October for the Edgemere-Sparrows Point Annual Haunted Dungeons Tour , a paid event on Fridays and Saturdays.

Address : 9500 North Point Road Fort Howard, Maryland 21052

Fort Howard Park’s historical significance is its connection with the most massive invasion of the United States on the morning of September 12, 1814.

The British had landed about seven thousand men near the site that later became Fort Howard as a part of a campaign to capture and burn Baltimore.

In coordination with their navy’s bombardment of Fort McHenry, the British troops were to march up Patapsco Neck and capture Baltimore from the east.

However, the British advance was first demoralized when American sharpshooters Daniel Wells and Henry McComas killed their famous commanding general.

The Americans had temporarily stalled the advance in the Battle of North Point and finally stopped dead when the British perceived the strength of the American defenses at Patterson Park.

Disheartened, they re-boarded their ships near North Point and sailed away to another defeat in the Battle of New Orleans.

Fort Howard was initially known as North Point but was renamed in 1902 after Colonel John Eager Howard, a Baltimore philanthropist and distinguished soldier of the Maryland Continental Line during the Revolutionary War.

In the 1700s, the site was an essential part of the transportation route between the Eastern Shore and the Port of Baltimore. Known as the “ Bulldog at Baltimore’s Gate ,” Fort Howard was also created to protect the valued Baltimore Port.

Many fort batteries, previously manned by the Coast Artillery Corps, can still be seen, although they are now covered by dark ivy and bushes. – Baltimore County gov/ Recreation & Parks

Fort Howard Park in Baltimore, Maryland

“ On the morning of September 12, 1814, five thousand British troops arrived outside of Baltimore and marched on the city of Baltimore with a plan to capture the city. Major General Robert Ross, a veteran of the Napoleonic Wars who had burned the White House and the U.S. Capitol just a few weeks before, led the advance. ” – Fort Howard

This park’s historical significance is its connection with the largest invasion of the United States on the morning of September 12, 1814.

In the 1700s, the site was an essential part of the transportation route between the Eastern Shore and the Port of Baltimore. Known as the “Bulldog at Baltimore’s Gate ,” Fort Howard was also created to protect the valued Baltimore Port.

Many fort batteries, previously manned by the Coast Artillery Corps , can still be seen, although they are now covered by dark ivy and bushes. You can read more about Fort Howard here .

The Fort is converted into a haunted house called the Haunted Dungeons during Halloween. I experienced the Haunted Dungeons of Fort Howard in the late 90s; it was a lot of walking and fun.

It takes about an hour to complete the haunted attraction.

Some ruins still have remnants of the decorations they used for the attraction.

This topic would be great for Weirdo October since not only is the Fort supposedly haunted, but so is the abandoned Veterans Hospital adjacent to the Fort.

The hospital grounds are guarded and still very well-active. Even though most of the buildings, including the main hospital, are defunct, there is still a functioning medical facility on the property.

Park police patrol the grounds daily.

When entering Fort Howard, the cool thing is you get to see all the old, abandoned historic buildings located on the property. I love history, and to experience a landmark place like Fort Howard is an honor.

Is Fort Howard Haunted?

I would probably say so. Wherever you have death, anxiety, and fear, you will have a haunted location. It would be an experience to gather a Paranormal Research team to stay the weekend there and report on what they find.

Zak Bagans and the Ghost Adventures team investigated Fort Arthur in the Battle of Los Angeles episode.  Abandoned forts, as well as abandoned prisons, are known to be haunting places for restless spirits.

Some spirits don’t know they are dead and remain “ earthbound.” Gifted Intuitive can sense the presence of these earthbound souls and can assist them in the “ crossing over process .”

That is if they want to leave. BWAHHHHHHH!!!!!

The Infamous Dungeons

But perhaps the most chilling aspect of Fort Howard Park lies beneath the surface.

The park’s underground tunnels and chambers network, known as the “dungeons,” have become synonymous with paranormal activity.

Built in the early 1900s for ammunition storage, the damp, dark tunnels became a breeding ground for local ghost stories.

Tales of disembodied voices, flickering lights, and apparitions of soldiers in period uniforms have captivated and spooked visitors for decades.

Haunted Happenings

The Fort Howard Haunted Dungeons, a seasonal Halloween attraction, capitalizes on these eerie legends.

Actors dressed as historical figures and fictional ghouls lurk within the tunnels, creating a spine-tingling experience for thrill-seekers.

However, even beyond the theatrics, visitors often report unexplained chills, sudden temperature drops, and the feeling of being watched.

Ghostly Tales

Despite its idyllic setting, Fort Howard Park is steeped in tales of ghostly encounters and unexplained phenomena.

One of the most frequently reported sightings is that of a spectral figure wandering near the old military cemetery.

Witnesses describe a uniformed soldier who appears and disappears mysteriously, leaving an unsettling feeling of unease behind.

The former hospital building, known for treating wounded soldiers during wartime, is another focal point of paranormal activity.

Visitors and paranormal investigators have reported hearing disembodied footsteps, echoing cries, and even glimpses of apparitions in the dimly lit corridors.

Some claim to have encountered the spirits of former patients lingering in the shadows of the abandoned structure.

The Haunted Lighthouse

Adjacent to Fort Howard Park lies the North Point Range Lights, a pair of historic lighthouses that served as navigational aids for ships entering the Chesapeake Bay.

The area surrounding these lighthouses is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of a keeper who tragically lost his life while tending to the lights.

Witnesses speak of flickering lantern lights, eerie sounds, and a ghostly presence that permeates the air, suggesting that the keeper’s spirit may still be watching over the bay.

Paranormal Investigations

Given the park’s reputation for being haunted, paranormal investigators and enthusiasts have flocked to Fort Howard Park to uncover its otherworldly secrets.

Numerous investigations have been conducted utilizing equipment such as EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) recorders, infrared cameras, and electromagnetic field meters.

Some investigators claim to have captured unexplained voices and anomalies, further fueling the legend of Fort Howard Park’s paranormal activity.

Fort Howard

Beyond the Spooks

It’s important to remember that while the paranormal aspects of Fort Howard Park capture the imagination, the park’s true value lies in its historical significance and natural beauty.

Visitors can explore the remains of the fort’s batteries, learn about the Battle of North Point, and enjoy hiking, biking, and picnicking amidst the scenic surroundings.

So, whether you’re a paranormal investigator, a history buff, or simply seeking a unique outdoor experience, Fort Howard Park has something to offer.

Just be prepared for a place where the echoes of the past mingle with the whispers of the unknown.

While Fort Howard Park continues to draw visitors with its scenic beauty and recreational opportunities, the ghostly tales surrounding its historic structures add an extra layer of intrigue.

Whether one is a history buff, nature enthusiast, or a seeker of the supernatural, Fort Howard Park in Baltimore County, Maryland, invites exploration and contemplation of its rich past and mysterious present.

As visitors traverse the park’s paths and historical remnants, they may wonder if the echoes of the past linger in the shadows, leaving the possibility that Fort Howard Park is not just a place of history but also a gateway to the paranormal.

I'm trying to find out information from those who have been to this attraction before. I keep reading show up early, is there a no later then time I should show up before they cut it off? Is it worth it? How long is the whole tour? Any details is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

That's interesting. I've never heard of a Haunted Ft. Howard. I'm sure that place is haunted 24-7 though. I'd be interested in your findings. Happy Haunting. Mwahahaha!

Apparently they've been doing this attraction for many years. http://www.haunteddungeons.com/forthoward.htm

Do not go to this event. Im an attorney, my husband owns a restaurant. We both love Halloween, we're young- about 8 years ago, in my early 20's Id wanted to go here, and it was closed, so my husband finally took me. We arrived, was told we were too late, and it was closed. It was only 10:15. My husband of course talked to someone and they ended up letting us in. It was awful. We were told about 20 times there was no cussing allowed. Which is ridiculous. Weve been to Jasons Woods, Shocktoberfest, and everyone there gets scared and says OH SH**, or D**N. Halfway through, my husband says, SH**. I have very little night vision. All of us sudden I turn around and hes gone. Hes being dragged out of the event by a big man, who swears he was disturbing the peace of the event. They refused to give us our money back. All of this aside, the actors are all about 7 yrs old, its awful, its corny, its the dumbest thing Ive ever been to, and if that hadnt happened. It would have been the biggest waste of money Id ever spent. Save your money and go to Penhurst Asylum or Shocktoberfest. Both great.

I have been there, and I volunteer there. They are family oriented and most of the volunteers are children. We are not paid, we ALL volunteer to have fun. Is it worth it? Yes it is. We get very busy and our volunteers work very hard to make it worth your time.

The Haunted Forest in Poolesville is a good option. But they do sell out early so get there by dusk.
