Our walking route takes you on a journey through Gettysburg’s historic downtown.

Our tour is both informative and thrilling.

Suitable for anyone and everyone curious about the haunted history of Gettysburg and its role in our nation’s history. Newcomers who’ve never done a ghost tour are as welcome as enthusiastic ghost hunters.

Three most haunted stops on the tour:

  1. The Farnsworth house – Once a sniper’s nest for Confederate soldiers, picking off Union troops. Now a Bed and Breakfast with some spooky permanent residents.
  2. The Jennie Wade House | The Farnsworth House

    With bullet holes in the walls, and some remaining in the doors, this house was caught in the crossfire as Jennie Wade and her family made bread for the soldiers.

  3. The extended Civil War Ghosts tour includes the Gettysburg Hotel, haunted by a couple. Romantic spirits caught on opposite sides of the conflict perhaps? Extend your tour and hear their story.

With over 46,000 soldiers killed in the three-day battle, Gettysburg has too many tragic tales for any single walking tour. Civil War Ghosts presents a route that shows all sides of this hideous conflict.

Both armies clashed around a town of just 1,500 inhabitants. Nearly every structure was commandeered for military use. Residents responded as humans will, in every way thinkable.

Book your place now to hear about Tillie Pierce, the daughter of a butcher wrote a book about her experiences during the war, of her and friends singing ‘Our Union Forever’, as six thousand of Buford’s cavalry passed through the town. Later as the battle grew nearer, she saw more troops passing and heard them wonder when they would be sent back in the horse-drawn ambulances that were also on the streets.

Sooner than she would have wanted the town overflowed with wounded soldiers. Tilly sprang into heroic action, tending wounds and dressings and making many men comfortable as they lay dying around the homestead, the outbuildings, and many other places around the small town of Gettysburg.

The Inn that bears her name has many stories of hauntings, hear this, and many more fascinating stories on the Civil War Ghost Tour now.

“Our tour guide was great. I have been coming to Gettysburg for close to 50 years and taken lots of ghost tours. This one gave information I did not know. The tour guide is the most important part of the tour and I would give this gentleman a 5+ stars! Thanks for a fun evening!

What’s on my ghost tour? - Just a sample of the locations on the tour

The Farnsworth House

Now a bed and breakfast, the Farnsworth House used to be the territory of Confederate snipers during the Battle of Gettysburg. Regarded as one of the town’s most haunted places, the Confederate soldiers who were once inside have long since passed… but continue to stay in the house.

The Hall of Presidents

The Hall of Presidents closed last year, but this former wax museum has a deep-rooted history of paranormal activity. The Hall was filled with wax figures of every American President and First Lady. The building built on a former Civil War burial ground. Being built atop a burial ground is seldom good news, and guests will learn how this building continues to be no exception…

Gettysburg Hotel - Extended Tour Exclusive

The beautiful Gettysburg Hotel is haunted by two spirits, man and woman, from wartime. They share a mysterious and deep bond, a secret known by only a small few. What is the tragic connection of this ghostly pair? Find out only on our extended tour!

The David Wills House | The Gettysburg Hotel Tour

The David Wills House is one of the most remarkable places in Gettysburg. During wartime, David Wills, a young lawyer, took on a difficult project by helping the many wounded and dead soldiers of Gettysburg. Wills made his home into a hospital for the wounded. He also took on the role of a gravedigger, helping establish a proper burial ground for the dead. For Wills’s efforts, President Lincoln spoke at the completed burial ground’s dedication and stayed at this house. Of course, this house isn’t just historically significant–it’s haunted, too. Learn the haunted side of this storied house only on our extended tour!
