“An engaging storyteller and she had a perfect mix of history with just a touch of creepy. Our kids loved it as well…” – Jenn
“I love history and I love mysteries, so haunted history was a natural match for me,” declares Sally Lobkowicz, Owner of Red Cloak Tours.
A researcher and writer specializing in genealogy and history, Sally put these talents to work learning about the towns of midcoast Maine, beginning with Damariscotta in 2007. Now called a “Maineologist” by some, she shares many areas of Maine’s history on Red Cloak Tours.
Pouring over the dusty pages of public and private collections, surfing the Internet for leads about Maine mysteries, and conducting personal interviews, she created the first Haunted History Tour just in time for the Halloween season.
Using her trademark red cloak with period dress from the 1800’s and combining well-researched facts with her unique story-telling style, Sally became known as The Lady in Red Cloak.
The popularity of the tours has increased over the years, so Sally often spends the winter months doing more research about Maine history in order to add new venues, new types of tours and partnerships.
Over the years, Sally has added the twists of Food, Lighthouses, Folklore, and more and looks forward to sharing her knowledge with you and working with her Associates for another season full of Red Cloak Tours.
