(Orphanage) Pass through the gift shop at Ghostly Images and begin your tour of the Haunted Orphanage where you will be introduced to the story of the National Soldiers Orphanage Homestead. You guide will escort you down the original wooden stairs to the same dingy, dark dungeon where a cruel headmistress chained children to stone walls when they misbehaved. You will hear about the appalling treatment of the young children in her charge, treatments that some say caused their spirits to linger throughout the building for over 150 years.
(Jennie Wade House) Enter the same doorway through which a bullet passed on July 3rd, 1863, killing young Jennie Wade and making her the only civilian to be killed during the battle of Gettysburg. The ghostly tales to be told in this house have been recorded in numerous books and television specials. Come see for yourself why this humble home has been featured on Travel Channel’s list of the most haunted houses.
