The Terrifying Tale Of Pennsylvania’s Haunted Inn At Herr Ridge Will Give You Nightmares
Even skeptics will likely agree that, if the paranormal exists, Gettysburg is
the ideal place to encounter the ghosts of the past. After all, it was the scene of the three-day Battle of Gettysburg, which resulted in 51,000 casualties. No matter where you journey in Gettysburg, you have a pretty good chance of experiencing the paranormal. Next time you visit the historical and haunted town, book a stay at the Inn at Herr Ridge in Pennsylvania.
The Inn at Herr Ridge’s story starts innocently enough, opening as a tavern in 1815. It eventually transitioned into a tavern and an inn, earning its name from one-time owner Frederick Herr.
Herr Ridge’s Tavern played a significant role in the Underground Railroad, sheltering and helping slaves escape to freedom.
Once the Civil War began, the tavern took on a new role. As the war raged outside of the tavern’s walls, doctors worked feverishly to save injured soldiers inside.
The tavern served as a field hospital for the Confederate Army during the duration of the Civil War. Surgeries, in fact, were performed in rooms 1, 2, and 3.
If you are
really brave, book your stay in Room 1. You might catch sight of a ghost by the fireplace or maybe…wherever it feels like hanging out. Don’t be too surprised either if that candle you blew out starts flickering on its own again.
Read real life ghost stories, if you stay in one of the inn’s original rooms, which feature diaries. Each diary tells the stories of former guests’ paranormal experiences at the inn.
You don’t have to actually check into the inn to possibly experience the paranormal, either. Grab a seat at the bar and see what happens.
Customers tell of feeling someone push against them but, when they looked to see who it was, no one was there. Others tell of bottles on the bar moving back and forth, but no one is pushing them.
Even if you don’t believe in the paranormal, you can enjoy a stay at the enchanting inn or dig into a delicious meal at the tavern. If you have a ghostly experience, consider it a win-win.
