Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry

P.O. Box 1148, 175 High Street, Harpers Ferry

The Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry by "O’ Be JoyFull" is a 'Family & Dog Friendly' walking tour appriopriate for most people of all age. The tour is approximately 1&1/2 to 1 & 3/4 hours in length and takes you around several blocks of the historic "Lower Town" section of Harpers Ferry to view a number of sites and buildings that have had ghostly phenomenon reported in, or around them, over the years.

You will be told about the unexplained, or ghostly phenomenon that has, or is still occurring, as well as stories of both legends and/or historical events, which may account for such unexplained ghostly happenings and encounters .

Of course, with Harpers Ferry’s violent past, especially during the American Civil War, many of the stories will tell of death, and some background history of Harpers Ferry is also an element of the tour.

Although the tour has often been described as "spooky," it is not especially scary. We have found that the tour is appropriate for all age groups and that most children are perfectly fine with the tour and its stories.*

* - Note: Although most all children of all ages have been fine with our ghost tour and its stories, if your child is especially sensitive, or especially scared of ghost stories, or stories about unexplained phenomenon, including ghostly experiences, and if your child expresses serious reservations or concerns about taking the tour, we ask that you respect his or her concerns and to carefully consider whether the tour would be appropriate for that "little person."
