Join the experienced guides of Ghostly Images of Gettysburg Ghost Tours and enter a truly haunted house. Follow your guide for a short walk around the area for haunted tales and then step into a historic home to hear the story from the inside. Ghostly Images is the only tour company in Gettysburg that is allowed to take you INSIDE the Homestead Orphanage or the Jennie Wade House.
Call for times and locations. Make your reservations before we sell out!
Specialty Tours are also given in the homes:
Ghostly Encounter Tour- a ghost from the location has crossed the curtain of time to share their side of the story. Hear tales of woe, learn what happened while they were there and hopefully you will find your way out after they have concluded their tour.
Late Night in the Orphanage- (Fridays) Every Friday night, your tour begins inside the deep recesses of the Orphanage. You will begin in a room never used before 2017 for a tour and hear the haunted tales that are rooted in the history that has stained the land below. A Paranormal Scholar will also discuss the experiences and haunts that they have dealt with, not only in the Orphanage but other locations as well. You will then move to the old kitchen and finally see the cellar, where evil ROSA CARMICAEL tortured the children so long ago! Dare to be where no one else has been?! (group size is limited, book ahead).
Late Night in the Orphanage- (Saturdays) New in 2017 a tour that sits in a comfort controlled environment, in the dark INSIDE the Homestead Orphanage. A guide will impart haunted tales of the area and other locations around the globe, for chilling tales as you sit all alone in the darkest part of the house. But are you really alone? Probably not, with all the activity the Orphanage has had throughout the years... Dare to be Scared for the Late Night Saturday Tour! (group size is limited-book ahead)
"Georgia your sister is dead!" Tour- Enter the Jennie Wade House and be greeted by the ghosts who tell the terrible tale of that fateful day, when Jennie died. The ghost of Mary Wade, a Union Soldier, Mr. Wade and perhaps Jennie herself will be there to share their tale. Not intended for young audiences.
The Demise of Rosa Tour- Witness the trial of Rosa Carmichael, the evil matron who abused so many and to this day still haunts the halls of the Orphanage. Be the one to decide whether Mrs. Rosa will be released or doomed to suffer for all eternity!
Haunted Bus Tour- Dare to board a motor coach bus and travel through the haunted country side as the guide regales you with haunted tales of those who were left behind after the battle and others that believe they will NEVER leave Gettysburg. Step off the bus at two very haunted locations for more tales. Keep your eyes open, you never know who's following you!
Private Paranormal Investigation- Enjoy 2 hours of investigating in one of the homes with your team of paranormal investigators. A seasoned guide will assist you in your own investigation, offering history, recent activity and even helping on the investigation if you desire. What more could you ask for?! More time? 4 hour investigations are available as well!
***Specialty Tours are scheduled for specific times during the year. Call for more information, tickets and times. No reservations for specialty tours, as these tours sell out fast.
