Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

Brickhouse Inn

Used as a hideout for Confederate sharpshooters during the Battle of Gettysburg, The Brickhouse Inn, or The Welty House, is still haunted by one lone soldier. The smell of acrid gunsmoke often fills the air.

Gettysburg Orphanage

The brutal treatment of war-ravaged orphans has left a spectral watermark in the basement of this 19th-century orphanage. People feel children's hands tugging at their clothes and have even seen the ghost of the prickly matron in the home above.

Farnsworth Inn

The Farnsworth Inn is a quaint bed and breakfast with some unexpected guests. Phantoms of Confederate soldiers preparing for war inhabit the inn and loudly stomp in through the attic.

The Hauntings of Gettysburg

Fifty thousand soldiers lost their lives during the Battle of Gettysburg. The bloodied fields of Pennsylvania farmland left behind eventually gave way to the modern needs of the town. But the damage had been done, and the souls left behind have not forgotten their tortured demise.

 

The ruinous toxicity of the Civil War has made Gettysburg one of the most haunted places in the United States. Homes have become cemeteries, and local taverns are filled with their grave-ridden residents. Many buildings served as field hospitals and are still filled with the tortured screams of patients. The violence continued as the victims of the war scrambled in the aftermath.

 

Now, the many visitors to Gettysburg are greeted with abnormal circumstances bordering on the macabre. Massive amounts of death have left the many haunted hotels and inns of Gettysburg ripe for unexplained activity. Book your tour tonight to experience the town’s haunts for yourself.

 

The Most Haunted Places in Gettysburg, PA

 

Many spirits call Gettysburg home, and the most haunted places in Gettysburg are often outside of the town’s limits. The Devil’s Den was the site of a grizzly battle where 1,800 Confederate and 800 Union soldiers lost their lies. Now, apparitions of soldiers spook visitors foolish enough to visit at night. Another haunted location outside the town, the Daniel Lady, is a farm covered in the blood and spirits of the victims who were treated there when it was a battle hospital.

 

Another makeshift hospital was the Gettysburg Hotel. A woman and soldier have been seen dancing in the ballroom among their many spectral spectators. Tillie Pierce’s healing powers are not forgotten in Gettysburg. But the wartime nurse could not heal everyone. Many souls lost during her heroic efforts now wander the Tille Piere House and frighten unsuspecting visitors.

You don’t believe in ghosts…yet.

If there’s one place that can make you a believer in ghosts, it’s Gettysburg. Just one look at the notoriously haunted Ha ... ll of Presidents will send a shiver down your spine, after you unveil the grim secrets of its hidden basement.

The spirits of Gettysburg will be happy to convince you otherwise during a tour with Civil War Ghosts.
