We'll bring you spine-chilling, blood-curdling and potentially otherworldly tales of life in our region with our annual "Haunted D.C." show. We'll visit a house where things really go bump in the night, and we'll check out the spookier spots in historic Annapolis. We'll also meet a man who spent his childhood convinced he was haunted by the ghost of a little girl.
