Overview

A walking tour that concludes inside a haunted house. Weekly special events include Midnight House Tours. Nightly walking tours are just the beginning. Gettysburg is a hotbed of ghostly activity and the spirits are mighty restless. Step inside the Haunted Orphanage, where innocent children were tortured by a cruel and abusive matron. Venture into the Jennie Wade House, site of the Battle's only civilian death, and where something lingers still... Ride the Ghost Bus to some of Gettysburg's most haunted landmarks or even host your own paranormal investigation. This is Ghostly Images of Gettysburg...where we step back and let the Spirits guide your experience. What will you see?

Had an amazing experience overall! Guide was great very informative. I think that having young children on the tours like this is probably not the best idea. I too have kids just seems that it gets a little out of hand for these tours. Overall...More

We were looking forward to this tour and were so very disappointed from the start! Our guide, Bill, spent most of the tour telling "funny" stories that didn't have much to do about the tour. We weren't impressed to hear about his grandson or how...More

My wife and I were looking forward to the ghost walk as it included the Gettysburg Orphanage. A place refuted to have a lot of ghostly activity. The walk started 15 minutes late and we meandered around being told stories that sounded weak. Little ghost...More

We did the Ghostly Encounter at the Jennie Wade House. Joe, our storyteller, was one of the best! He played the part of James Wade, the father of Jennie Wade. He was very convincing and also told a few different stories that captured our full...More

Tour of the Jenny Wade house was very interesting. My husband and I found the guide to be very engaging especially to those families having children. Not too ghostly but very entertaining!

We did the Showcase Tour. You went in a room and were told several Gettysburg "ghost" stories based on events that had happened. There were animated characters and figures that reacted to the story and it was really interesting! We really enjoyed it as adults,...More

Dwayne, Thanks for your response!! I'm very happy to know that you can schedule private tours with longer hours, I will surely keep that in mind next time I come. Are there other buildings that you guys offer tours for?

We offer investigations in the Hall of Presidents. As of right now we do not offer regular tours through the Hall but that could change as the season progresses. We do offer a bus tour that takes you to the Sachs Covered... More
