Farnsworth House Inn - Gettysburg PA Real Haunted Places

  • Gettysburg, PA
  • 717-334-8838
The original part of this house was built in 1810. It was a house of shelter for the Confederate sharpshooters. At the time of the three-day conflict a civilian - a little girl - died during battle after she was accidentally shot. After battle, the house served as a hospital. Today the property is believed to be haunted by dozens of ghost, including that of a nurse named Mary. The cellar of the house is particularly haunting.

  • Cat And Perfume

    We stayed in one of the original portions of the building. The room that we stayed in had a cat bed and a bell that was attached to one of the curtains. There was a note in one of the journals from somebody that had a previous day that said that they were awakened by the sound of a cat meowing. I want to say that I was awakened by a meowing sound, but the room that we stayed in was right next to the kitchen so I convinced myself that it could also be one of the kitchen doors opening and closing and creaking at 4:00 in the morning as they get ready for breakfast. One thing that I do find particularly interesting though is at one time I was awake and by what smelled like perfume sprayed right in my face. While checking out there is a sign above the cash register that says one of the spirits permeates the smell of roses when she's in the area. I feel like I was visited by this particular spirit. I tried to scare my friend by saying if there are any free spirits in the area that want to go home with me, you are welcome to. I told my family and a couple co-workers and one of my friends these stories and they did not believe me and one time at work a coworker told me to come over to his desk and I smelled the same smell that I was woken up by.
