Gettysburg's Historic and Haunted Inns

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania's Odd Inns - Historic and Haunted Inns and Bed & Breakfasts       

Haunted Farnsworth House Inn in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Haunted Farnsworth House Inn in Gettysburg, PA
The house is said to be haunted by no fewer than 14 ghosts. There used to be 16, but a couple of years ago, they conducted a "ghost release" ceremony and advised any spirits who wished to leave instructions on how to pass the veil. Only two took them up on the offer. In particular, the ghost they call "Mary" seems to be the main spirit. She is said to come to those in suffering or discomfort, and attempts to comfort them, often laying down on the bed with the visitor. There is also the ghost of a small boy who was killed by a horse & carriage in front of the house while playing, and the ghost of his distraught father has been seen as well. The sounds of rebel soldiers moving trunks in the attic are often heard, while footsteps and voices are heard with no human source. Complete Story  


The Lightner Farmhouse B&B in Historic and Haunted Gettysburg

The Lightner Farmhouse B&B in Haunted Gettysburg
Let your surroundings transport you as you stay in a Federal-style brick home built in 1862 by Isaac Lightner, an Adams County sheriff and farmer. The inn keepers have carefully preserved the original character of Isaac Lightner’s home, including the wide moldings, random-plank floors, and four fireplaces. Relax in front of the old beehive oven, a leftover of the summer kitchen built by Isaac Lightner. It was in this oven that bread was baked for Union soldiers in 1863. Used as a Federal hospital for wounded soldiers following the Battle of Gettysburg, today the Farmhouse offers the feel of history with modern comforts and extraordinary hospitality. All within minutes of the Gettysburg National Battlefield and historic town.

Cash Town Inn

The Cashtown Inn near Gettysburg, PA
The Cashtown Inn was built in 1797 and got its name from Peter Marck, the first innkeeper, who would only accept cash. The crossroads it sat near would eventually bear the same name, Cashtown. In 1815, Marck acquired a tavern license and originally had four rooms available. During the Gettysburg Campaign, the inn became the headquarters for many Confederate officers and staff, including Generals A. P. Hill, John D. Imboden, and Henry Heth. The basement also served as a field hospital during the battle, and it is said that so many amputations were performed, that the limbs piled up outside blocked any sunlight from coming in the cellar window.

Baladerry Inn in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

The Haunted Baladerry Inn in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Like many other inns in Gettysburg, the Baladerry in served as a field hospital for the soldiers during ‘The Battle of Gettysburg’. The current owners have a binder packed full of stories from guests and staff relating to the ghosts at the Baladerry Inn. The source of the hauntings are believed to be 7 Confederate soldiers that are buried beneath tennis courts nearby. One of the most prominent photos that guests of the inn have captured includes some Confederate soldiers in uniform. The photo appears to show two seated near the French-style double doors and two standing just outside. One of them appears to be wearing a black armband which was worn by Confederates for a time, after the death of the famous General Stonewall Jackson.  Complete Story
