DATE & TIME SCHEDULE
The Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry by "O’ Be JoyFull" is a walking tour, approximately 1&1/2 to 1 & 3/4 hours in length, which 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." The tour is not especially strenuous, though Harpers Ferry is not built on flat land either. Therefore, while you will not have to climb any stairs, unless you want to, you will have to walk approximately 7 to 8 blocks, as well as up a few streets that go uphill. - What To Wear Or Bring Along You should definitely wear comfortable walking shoes. It is often breezy or windy here in Harpers Ferry, so a light jacket is suggested even during the warmer months. Of course, in the colder months, a heavier jacket is also strongly suggested. Many people have found an umbrella to be useful for rainy nights. A flashlight is a great help for walking around the dimly lit streets of Harpers Ferry. Starting Time For The Tour The tours start promptly at 8:00 PM and we therefore ask you to plan on arriving as early as possible to The Piazza (Front Patio) of St. Peter's Catholic Church, 100 Church Street, Harpers Ferry, WV, but certainly you need to arrive by 7:45 PM at the latest, as it is not fair to keep those people who have arrived on time waiting for late arrivals. Cost... Effective February, 2012, the cost for the approximate 1&1/2 to 1 $ 3/4 hour Ghost Tour is $12.00 per person, $9.00 per child 8 to 12 years of age, and there is no charge for well behaved children under 8 years of age. NOTE: Children who are not well behaved during the tour will be given a sugary treat, and a sugary caffeine loaded drink to wash it down, at the very end of the tour, along with a free puppy to take home, plus an angry ghost to keep you awake for the next week! (Just kidding! Or are we?) We accept cash and checks only. We apologize for not having the ability to take credit cards. DIRECTIONS: From Frederick, MD.... Take US15/US340 West.
