Jennie Wade House - Real Gettysburg Haunt
- 548 Baltimore St.
- Gettysburg, PA
- (717) 334-4100
The Jennie Wade House is now a tourist attraction that sports a bullet hole in one of its doors, where Jennie Wade herself was shot by a stray bullet that entered her home during the Battle of Gettysburg. Stories say that women who put their finger through the hole will soon be proposed marriage, a gift from Jennie herself, who was killed before she had the chance to get married.

When I was about 8 years old we went on vacation to Gettysburg and my parents bought me a book about Jennie Wade in the hotel lobby. I read it cover to cover and was FASCINATED / DRAWN to her. Naturally, I begged my parents to take me on the tour and on our last day we finally went. When we went inside the house I had a heavy panicking feeling in my chest. I felt dark, upset, nervous, and feeling the urge of "we need to leave" (basically what I can now describe as a panic attack). As an adult, I am a believer in spirits, past lives, etc and wonder if what I felt was a sensitivity to a spirit. Definitely a strange feeling. Definitely worth checking out.Posted 3/18/19
