On My List

It’s just a little over a month now until my trip to Gettysburg PA. I am already thinking ahead to make sure I visit all the hot spots for haunted activity which in Gettysburg is just about everywhere.
Did you know that Gettysburg has been listed as one of the most haunted places in the U.S 
On my trip to Gettysburg last year we took several of the ghost tours. One of those was to the Farnsworth House.
One of the most famous ghost in the house is a lady named Mary She often lays down on the bed with the guest. There is also the ghost of a small boy who was hit by a carriage in front of the house while playing. His father rushed him into the house where he died a few minutes later. There are sounds in the attic of footsteps of soldiers. The bullet that shot and killed Jennie Wade was suppose to have come from this window.

Do you see the white mist? I can’t explain how it got there. The window is clear glass and overlooks the street and when looking out the window you see other buildings. There was nothing that should have caused this abnormality on the disk. Notice the heart shape? The photo was taken while sitting in the attic listening to stories about the house and the hauntings. While there the door to the attic opened on its own. There is no way anyone went in or out. I was sitting near the door and it is at the top of the stairs. I would have seen anyone who opened the door if they tried to run down the stairs without being seen.

I’ve put this house on my list to take a closer look at.

Yes, while we were in Gettsyburg a few years ago and took one of the Ghost Walks, we were told that the Farnsworth House is on the haunted side. We walked past it, but never did go inside. I also noticed the many bullet holes that are on the side of the building. We, also, shall return there just to snoop around.

I don't remember if I told you, but we also did have lunch at the Cashtown Inn. It's another haunted place and has quite a few stories that have been photographed and documented. We never did see anything there, but I'm sure that it is.

I will be watching for your Posts on the Gettsyburg Trip you take.
