Farnsworth House Candlelight Ghost Walks
Walk by candlelight into the realms of the unknown as you are escorted by a period dressed guide down the very streets the soldiers walked. Their tales and legends blend with bits of human interest and historical fact to make the walks both entertaining and educational for all ages.
We began in the "haunted" cellar which was filled to the brim with cheesy Halloween decorations and after our first thirty minutes was eat up with a demonstration of equipment (given in near total darkness), we were allowed ten minutes to Investigate a 10 x 12 approx area...after that we were led about 300 yards outside the building to a running track by a school and then a patch of woods to investigate...our scariest find was a cat, lol, which our leader led us to believe was a "ghostly apparition", lol...very sad ghost tour for a place that consider itself one of the most haunted places
This tour was something much less than what I expected. The stories were okey but they just take you for a walk and tell stories on the roadside. Nothing chilling about this and would not recommend for adults seeking adventure.
Farnsworth house attic was only highlight of this tour, but it was just too hot (july 4th).
this is a great place if your into ghosts or paranormal or ghost tours...or just hearing some good history! Im sure you'll experience something from another world..right in downtown ghettysburg too... wonderful staff as well!
I loved staying there, but wasn't so thrilled with the tour or the basement mourning show. They pack the basement where you can barely move, it was not comfortable. The tour, they were all stories I had heard before or read in a book. I did however, like the Sleepy Hollow of Gettysburg Candlelight Ghost Tour just down the street. I would do that one again. One other comment, if you are interested in books on local ghost stories, good luck trying to buy one. They are locked up in another bookstore and it is only open about an hour a day. I never did get in there.
I was staying at the Farnsworth Inn, so I thought the ghost tour would be cool. I had done the Mourning Theater on a previous visit, and this was my first ghost walk. It was very, very cold, but we had the walk, anyway, which was good. The stories were very interesting, and would certainly do t again.
I didn't stay overnight, just did the tour. We went to the attic and the guide told stories about the history. He was friendly and added flair to his tour, it was fun! As the group was leaving the room, I stayed behind to take photos with a few other folks (none of my friends brought a camera and we wanted to get pictures of potential orbs) and take a peek out the window where the snipers were stationed. I got my photos and then went to the window - as I approached the window, I suddenly walked into a cold spot. There was no moving air, it's just that the temperature dropped about 30 degrees immediately. I have never experienced anything like that in my life and have no way to explain it. I turned around and realized I was suddenly alone in the attic, the other picture-takers had gone. I was terrified! I took a quick look out the window and then hightailed it out of there. I have no idea how to explain what I experienced. It definitely left an impression. I never dreamed that anything would actually happen when we were there - still don't know what to make of it.
If you have a bad storyteller you are not going to have a good ghost walk. Our storyteller did not believe what he was saying. If he doesn’t believe, you won’t believe. He got the characters in his stories mixed up far too often. It was a bad experience and not worth the $7.50. There are many other ghost walks in Gettysburg and I suggest you try one of the others.
I went with my friend and stayed in the McFarland Room in July. I was pretty creeped out and was afraid to go to sleep that night. Of course nothing happened but it was still a scary experience all the same. That night we had gone on a ghost tour..it was okay. I was too nervous to go to sleep so we went outside and took a walk and then came back inside around midnight. I was still scared to go to sleep and I kept opening my eyes everytime I would hear a noise. It was like that for about an hour and a half and then I finally went to sleep which wasnt for long. That morning we had a nice breakfast that filled me up. I took some pictures but nothing unusual was in them. I would preobably go back to the Farnsworth House and hopefully get better sleep:] I would definetely reccomend this B&B!
