New England is rich with stories and legends of ghost ships and pirates long dead. Blackbeard, Sandy Gordon, Captain Kidd and many more once called the region home; and still do. Phantom ships continue to roam the waters of the New England coast. Some mysteriously abandoned while other vanished never to be seen again , in the physical form anyway. Learn why Marblehead dreads the screeching Lady or who haunts the Isles of Shoals. Why does a phantom dory stalk the water off of New Hampshire and what happened to the Sea Bird's crew? Visit a real life haunted ship and more.

Reception begins at 6:00pm ; Lecture begins at 7:00pm
