Gettysburg: Ghost-Themed Self-Guided Driving Tour

1. Gettysburg: Ghost-Themed Self-Guided Driving Tour

Experience a ghost-themed, self-guided driving tour developed by local guides, creative writers, and professional voice artists. Hear about spooky events and visit the most haunted spots. Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app that will function as your personal guide, audio tour, and map all in one. Purchase one tour per car, not per person. Everyone listens together! This 10+ mile-long tour covers the essentials of Gettysburg Ghost in 2-3 hours. From the Gettysburg Heritage Center, set out on a loop around the Gettysburg battlefield. Begin your tour by learning why Gettysburg and the battlefield are so haunted via expert narrator and author Mark Nesbitt. Then, visit Oak Ridge and hear the harrowing tale of the brigadier general who sent his men to certain doom. Afterward, visit the site of General Lee’s headquarters on Seminary Ridge and hear a chilling account of a soldier who was buried alive. Hear the true stories of unexplainable events visitors have witnessed, from noises in the attic to an unwelcome house guest. Pass by Schmucker Hall on Seminary Ridge and hear about the countless amputations that took place when the hall became a makeshift hospital. Continuing on, stop by the very spot where people have seen the ghost of John Reynolds, a soldier whose love for the woman he never had the chance to marry could never be forgotten, not even after death. Then, hear about the collision between the worlds of the living and the dead that took place during a routine reenactment of the battle. Hear how reenactors found themselves momentarily engulfed by inexplicable cold darkness. After that, swing by the Eisenhower Farm, where doors slam and footsteps echo through the home even though no one lives there anymore. Benefit from animated videos to visualize different centuries and interior rooms. At Little Round Top, listen to accounts of a mysterious stranger visitors have seen on this bloodied hilltop. Then visit the Valley of Death, the site of historic violence and a lingering presence from the past. But not all ghosts on this tour are evil. Visit the Devil’s Den and hear about a soldier who suffered through the worst of the battle, yet sometimes offers help to visitors who get lost among the boulders. Heading toward the infamously haunted Weikert house, learn about film crews who have tried for years to capture the supernatural phenomena of this landscape. Hear the shocking things they’ve uncovered during their time here after dark. Near the end of the tour, arrive at the site of Pickett’s Charge, where countless men were sent to their deaths. Hear how many were never able to reconcile with their senseless ends and continue to haunt this field.
