Spend The Night At Philadelphia’s Most Haunted Site For A Truly Terrifying Experience
Have you ever wanted to spend the night at one of the most haunted places in the world? Well, this October, Fort Mifflin on Mud Island in Philadelphia is offering the opportunity to sleep with the ghosts! You’ll start with a guided tour and learn about the paranormal investigations that take place at the fort. This event is not for everybody, though; you’ve got to be brave enough to last the night – and at least 18 years old.
Fort Mifflin was commissioned in 1771, and stands on Mud Island in the Delaware River.
It was the site of an important American Revolutionary War battle in 1777, when the British Army bombarded and captured the Fort Mifflin on their way to Philadelphia.
The bombardment was the heaviest in the war, and nearly half of the Americans stationed here died.
Their brave stand, however, allowed the Continental Army to re-position for the Battle at White Marsh and the Winter at Valley Forge.
During the Civil War, Fort Mifflin was used as a prison for Confederate POWs and the conditions reported here were horrific.
It is said that those who died fighting for Fort Mifflin and those who died trapped in its walls still haunt the halls to this day.
Paranormal investigations and lantern-led ghost tours are a big part of autumn at Fort Mifflin.
After all, the spookiest season is the best time to investigate the sounds, chills, and ghosts that appear when you walk the historic fort.
Fort Mifflin takes it one step further, though, offering guests an opportunity to experience an overnight paranormal investigation on October 28th.
Don't be surprised if you feel a chill in the air - or even if you hear artillery fire! The Fort is still used by the United States Army, making it the longest operational military fort in the United States.
You never know what you will run into in these creepy halls... so getting some sleep might not be the best idea.
Are you brave enough to last the night in one of the most haunted places in the world?
Sleep is optional - I don't think I could rest knowing disgruntled Confederate soldiers haven't found their peace yet!
Once you're there, you'll need to be brave... because there's no turning back.
Get your tickets early, as this event tends to sell out early in October.
