Step foot into the cellar of the Farnsworth House, one of the most haunted inns in America, to experience the original Gettysburg ghost tour. After descending into the candlelit cellar, your guide will regale you with tales of the Farnsworth House and the spirits that still roam the fields of Gettysburg. The cellar is decorated like a Victorian viewing parlor, complete with antique caskets, hair wreathes, and mourning antiquities.
Take a nighttime walk through Gettysburg to explore some of the town’s most haunted locations. Begin your journey at the historic Farnsworth House, then take to the streets of Gettysburg to explore some of the town’s most haunted locations, including the Jennie Wade House and the Grove, the site of a massive Confederate charge on July 2, 1863.
The sights and smells of the wounded and dying are still here in Gettysburg. Your storyteller will lead you north toward High Street to the site of Confederate Hospitals. Listen to ghost stories about the buildings that were used as field hospitals and are still in use today by the spirits that remain. You will end in the haunted Farnsworth House which was also used as a make shift hospital after the battle.
Follow a medium into the Séance Room for a recreation Victorian séance. Your medium will attempt to contact the spirit of Mary Duncan, the victim of an actual, unsolved Gettysburg murder mystery. Immerse yourself in total darkness as the spirits arise to help solve the mystery of Mary’s brutal murder. This presentation is a recreation—not an actual séance. Under 12 not admitted.
Victorian Séance – 9:30 p.m.
Conduct your own spiritual investigation using the same
equipment as the professionals, including K-II EMF meters, thermal sensors, dousing rods, digital voice recorders, and night vision/infrared viewfinders. Begin your investigation in the cellar of the Farnsworth House before continuing to the Grove, one of the most haunted areas of the Gettysburg battlefield. Under 10 not admitted.
Ghost Hunt – 8:45 and 10:30 p.m.
Follow your period dressed storytellers to the haunted cellar of the Farnsworth House for dramatic uncensored ghost stories heard no where else. Then follow the guide into the darkness of night to the Grove (one of the most haunted areas on the battlefield) for an irreverent look at ghosts and Confederate mass-grave stories. Parental discretion is advised; no one under 14 admitted.
