5 Little-Known Haunted Spots In Gettysburg That Will Chill You To The Bone
Gettysburg, hands down, earns props as one of the most haunted towns in the United States and most definitely in Pennsylvania. If you want to experience the paranormal, your best chance is a visit to the historical town that’s known for the bloodiest battle during the Civil War. You can’t travel far in Gettysburg without coming upon a spot that’s known for its paranormal history. However, here are a few of the lesser-known haunted spots in Gettysburg that are also worth a visit.
1. The David Stewart Farm
David Stewart Farm, 2795 Fairfield Rd, Gettysburg, PA 17325, USA
A day in Gettysburg usually isn’t enough, especially if you’re a history buff or are in search of the paranormal. Increase your chances of experiencing the paranormal by checking into one of the rooms at The David Stewart Farm. The farmhouse was used as a makeshift hospital after the Battle of Gettysburg. Doctors and nurses cared for injured and dying soldiers, some of whom are said to remain to this day. Book your stay on the official Airbnb page of

2. The Angle
The Angle at Gettysburg, Hancock Ave, Gettysburg, PA 17325, USA
Near the Copse of Trees, the site of Pickett’s Charge during the Civil War, The Angle features a series of burial pits. While the bodies have since been moved, the burial pits remain. However, some spirits are said to have stuck around. Listen carefully, and you just might hear the anguished cries of soldiers, desperate to find a way back home.
3. The Inn at Herr Ridge
Inn at Herr Ridge B&B, 900 Chambersburg Rd, Gettysburg, PA 17325, USA
Like the David Stewart Farm, the Inn at Herr Ridge served as a field hospital during and after the Battle of Gettysburg. The property is said to be teeming with the paranormal with blown out candles suddenly flickering on again. Even if you don’t book a stay at the inn, visit the tavern, where you might experience such odd occurrences as bottles on the bar moving back and forth on their own. You might even feel someone push against you, but no one’s there. Stop by the official website of

4. Gettysburg College
Gettysburg College, 300 N Washington St, Gettysburg, PA 17325, USA
As with most of the hauntings in Gettysburg, Gettysburg College’s paranormal history dates back to the Civil War. During the war, Pennsylvania Hall served as both a field hospital and a morgue. One of the most famous ghost tales to come out of Gettysburg College is from individuals who were on the elevator when it arbitrarily took them to the basement. When the doors opened, a hectic scenic of doctors and nurses, working feverishly on patients, played out before them. Yet, the room was absolutely silent. When the elevator doors shut and reopened, the basement was empty. Here’s the official website of
5. Spangler’s Meadow
Spangler's Spring, Colgrove Ave, Gettysburg, PA 17325, USA
Not too far from Spangler’s Spring, a woman in white roams Spangler’s Meadow, in search of something – or someone. Believed to be a nun, the so-called woman in white has been seen countless times over the years, always floating and in search of someone, perhaps one of the countless Union soldiers who died here during the Civil War.
