About – Melindas Haunted Woods…


elinda's Haunted woods is based upon the true haunting legend of Melinda of Reisterstown – who was murdered in the early 1800s.   Melinda was killed by an angry lynch mob.   The townspeople deemed Melinda a WITCH!…and burned her at the stake.   As Melinda was on fire, she vowed to "put a curse on all of the townspeople of Reisterstown ", and swore that she would come back and get revenge on ALL of them.   The people were so scared that they cut her scorched body in half and gave her upper body to a farmer who lived quite a distance away on Bonita Avenue in Owings Mills.   The bottom half is burried here at Melinda's Haunted Woods.…
