————-

“I love history and I love mysteries, so haunted history was a natural match for me,” declares Sally Lobkowicz, Director of Red Cloak Haunted History Tours.

A researcher specializing in genealogy and history, Sally put these talents to work in the towns of midcoast Maine, beginning with Damariscotta in 2007.

She pored over the dusty pages of public and private collections, surfed the Internet searching for leads, and conducted personal interviews, creating the first Red Cloak Haunted History Tour just in time for the 2007 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.
