Downtown Ghost Tours

Downtown Ghost Tours

Hagerstown, MD (September 26, 2008)- It has been reported that horses continue to warn fireman of terrible fires by their clopping steps and jingling harnesses in the old firehouse even though it hasn't been used in years and there are no longer any fireman there to warn. You might hear them for yourself! You might see the apparitions of children that have bothered employees in downtown shops and even drove one young lady to quit her job. Will you hear the mysterious echoes and noises that surround City Hall, perhaps the spirit of Little Heiskell, Hagerstown's symbol and protector atop the City Hall building, still watching over his city even after being shot through the heart by a confederate soldier? Or will you see Elizabeth Hager roam the halls of what was once her daughter Rosanna's downtown home?
By wagon or on foot, visit and hear about some of Downtown Hagerstown's most haunted sites on Friday, October 24, 2008. All tours will begin and end at the Washington County Free Library located at 100 South Potomac Street in Downtown Hagerstown.
