Stores are stocked with costumes and giant bags of candy in preparation for the droves of children who will go trick-or-treating at the end of the month. But hand in hand with the fun side of Halloween is the spooky side, and Harford County is not exempt from local ghost stories. Lisa Ryan opened Havre de Haunts Tours & Paranormal Research last year to investigate and share those stories. Through Havre de Haunts, Ryan offers a 1½-hour guided walking tour of Havre de Grace that includes a history of the town as well as local ghost stories, all of which are true, Ryan claims.

The theater is dark and cool on a sweltering recent afternoon, the colored wigs, stepladders and old furniture in the aisles remnants of a just-ended community play. Handbills in a glass case recall a 1905 musical. The ceiling is antique tin. The concession stand sits not off a lobby, but among its 120 seats. If the Havre de Grace Opera House feels less like a Harford County La Scala than a blend of off-Broadway, the Roaring '20s and Mayberry, it might be because it has been asked to play so many different roles during its 144-year history.

The main drag outside this former general store in the homey waterfront community of Havre de Grace - a short hop off U.S. 40 north of Baltimore - is drenched in Americana. Antiques shops and local art galleries dominate the street, clustered behind kitschy window displays of knickknacks. A sign advertising a summer seafood festival is posted outside an independent bookstore. But at the back of Mary Martin's downtown shop, you'll discover a far wider world, collated in an assortment of postcards, some featuring nearby small towns but many others far-flung foreign cities.

Joey Jobes' workshop is a small, two-story building in Havre de Grace, minutes from the Susquehanna Flats at the top of the Chesapeake Bay. The space is dominated by saws, knives, paints and hundreds of blocks in various stages of transforming into ducks, geese and other birds. Most horizontal surfaces are covered in tools and supplies, but Jobes seems to know where everything is. "My life is business," Jobes said. A second-generation decoy carver in the self-proclaimed decoy capital of the world, he has been in his business for most of his 48 years and goes about it with practiced ease.
