America’s Spookiest City, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Our Splurge: 3 W King Street, Abbottstown, Pennsylvania is listed by Dick Tucker of Howard Hanna Camp Hill for $1,190,000.

All Hallows’ Eve is just one day away, so it has us thinking of America’s spookiest cities. Near the top of everyone’s list is Gettysburg, Pennsylvania – known for its numerous sightings of the 51,000 soldiers who died in one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. Teeming with ghostly encounters, including those with Confederate General, Robert E. Lee, the city makes for one thrilling Halloween getaway.


If you’re really brave, you’ll post up in one of Gettysburg’s historic inns, which are said to be haunted, or head over to Gettysburg College, once the site of a Civil War field hospital. The town is pegged with so many hauntings it will have you shaking in your boots! But, like any good city, there’s more to Gettysburg than fabled soldier tales, sallow figures, and those spooky orbs that make themselves known in ghost hunter photos.

For this week’s Second Shelters Splurge vs. Steal, we found two fantastic Gettysburg homes, each with head-turning interiors and exceptional locations, but with price points that really set them apart. Which one would you choose, the Abbottstown Victorian splurge or the Log Home Living steal?
