About

As the site of one of the bloodiest battles in American history, the Battle of Gettysburg led to the death of over 50,000 people. This 3-day battle has influenced dozens of stories about ghosts and hauntings, many of which you’ll hear about during this walking tour. Some tales are more historical than haunted, though the traumatic conflict has left its mark on sites like the Gettysburg Hotel and The Union Hotel where spirits reportedly lurk.

Highlights

Great for history buffs and ghost hunters alike
See buildings used as hospitals like the Dobbin House Tavern
Visit where Abraham Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address
Hear stories of how the battle impacted civilians throughout Gettysburg

Itinerary

This inn, once the Welty House, witnessed the Battle of Gettysburg, and actually played host to Confederate snipers. Guests here have had myriad experiences, explore them here at your first stop.
There are no ghost stories here that we know of, but this tree is known as a Witness Tree. Witness Trees are trees that are around for historic moments. This one witnessed the battle, and also Abraham Lincoln's presence to give the Gettysburg Address.
This home also played host to Confederate snipers, and the owner brought in a psychic to identify the presences after she had an experience of her own.
Today, it's the police department and municipal building, but it was originally the county jail. During the battle, there are records that describe the death of three prisoners: two by execution, one by suicide. There is said to be at least one spirit who remains in the building.
This building was constructed just 4 years before the Battle of Gettysburg, and served as a hospital during and after the battle. The seats were removed to create an open room that was used as an operating room, with surgeons operating in front of other soldiers. All the trauma left and imprint on the building.
This building, like many other large buildings in the area, was turned into a hospital in the midst of the battle. There is said to be a spirit of a soldier here, looking, but never finding, the exit or his way home.
This hotel was also used as a hospital during the war, and a guest here had a truly terrifying experience. Investigate the stories of haunting at this historic hotel.
After sending his wife and children away, the owner of this home hid out in the cellar while Union and Confederate soldiers fought just above him. Visitors have heard urgent whispers when no-one is around. Explore the history and hauntings of this location.
The spirit people say they experience here is playful, and staff have nicknamed him George. These are more recent hauntings, and no one is sure why they have started.
This house was the location of trades between enemy soldier during lulls in the battle, but many never made it back with their spoils. Hear their stories.
This house was one of the first stops on the Underground Railroad, and also served as a hospital during the war, but, oddly enough, most reports of spirits here are those of children.
