ELLICOTT CITY, Md. - Sept. 26, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Haunted Ellicott City

Local author Shelley Wygant will be available to sign copies of book


Beginning with its founding in 1772, Ellicott City endured an endless procession of tragic deaths. As a result, this eighteenth-century mill town is packed with restless spirits and unexplained supernatural occurrences. A mysterious artist haunts Castle Angelo and threatens to throw residents into the river below. Many of the temporary occupants of the former Easton and Sons Funeral Home seem to have remained, and the ghost of Annie Van Derlot still inhabits the ruins of the Patapsco Female Institute. In this comprehensive compilation of ghost stories and local legends, Shelley Wygant explores the history and horrors of a village that somehow lives on.

About the Author:

Creative director and marketing executive Shelley Davies Wygant is a past president, officer and board member of the Howard County Historical Society and Historic Ellicott City Inc. In addition to this book, she is also the author of Images of America: Howard County and owner of Haunted Ellicott City, LLC, a resource for all things spooky in this eighteenth-century mill town.
