Patapsco Female Institute

We will be going on a tour of the park and doing an investigation of the grounds. We will divide into smaller groups and doing some evp's to see if we get anything.

You must be an investigator and have dues paid up to date to go on this investigation.

We need to do a deposit to hold the date so I am asking for $10 at the November meeting so we can pay the deposit and hold our date.

Here is a short history of the place: The Patapsco Female Institute was one of the most famous schools for young women in 19th century. Wealthy southern land owners sent their daughters here to learn etiquette, as well as education. The school closed in 1890, and is now just a ruin, that sits on the highest elevation in Ellicott City, Maryland. When the school closed, it went through several stages of ownership, including a hotel, private home, and at one time a hospital for the wounded during WWI. It was also an outdoor summer theater (The Hilltop Theater) and nursing home for the wayward. Today, there are current on-going archaeological digs within the park and some Indian artifacts have been discovered here. I've read that some believe the school was built upon sacred Indian burial grounds. Today, couples rent the grounds for weddings. It is believed to be haunted by the ghost of a young lady by the name of Annie Van Derlot, who was sent here by her parents. Annie did not like being at the school and pleaded with her parents to bring her home. She died before they could grant her that wish. It is believed she died of pneumonia.

      No problem Margaret, I would like my refund however. The last two times I removed myself and someone else took my place I was never compensated. If you would like to select the next person on the list please have them reimburse me through PayPal or you can credit my account. Let me know which you choose to do. Thanks.

      JoAnn there must be a mistake on one of our parts as I don't have you paid for this event. If you would like to take the discssion off line and email me concerning the matter of your payments then I can discuss them with you. This is the way it should be handled anyway.
