In 1869 Rosa Charmichael came to Gettysburg to become the Matron of the very successful “Children’s Homestead Orphanage”. By the mid 1870’s things had taken a very dark turn. Rumors of the cruel abuse of the children had spread through the town. Eventually enough evidence had been collected; Rosa was put on trial and found GUILTY! But she didn’t go easy. Some believe she didn’t go at all and continues to haunt the Orphanage.
Join us as a phantom witness presents the evidence against her in the very building where the story took place. Listen to Rosa as she continues to argue her case. Be there when Rosas ghost faces her final judgment. You the jury will decide her fate. Will she go to the light or be sent into eternal darkness. Cost: $18 per person
