Description

The rich history of Pennsylvania is filled with the unexplained: frightening specters, mysterious apparitions and haunted buildings. Join Dan Asfar as he recounts the Keystone State's most intriguing ghost stories: * Phantoms materialize and eerie lights flash at historic Gettysburg, America's most famous -- and haunted – battlefield. * In a fountain at the notorious Baleroy Mansion in Philadelphia, a young boy sees a skull in place of his own reflection -- a strange premonition of his sudden death a month later. * Every New Year's Day, the spirit of colonial war hero Anthony Wayne wanders Route 322, still frustrated that his earthly remains were buried in separate graves * A three-year-old girl takes a fatal fall while her father paints her portrait, causing it to be inexplicably possessed by her forlorn spirit. * Two mysterious suicides cause a spike in paranormal activity in Tamaqua's haunted Elks Club. * Deceased convicts, driven to insanity by abuse, return to haunt the Eastern State Penitentiary, the first prison where solitary confinement was used. * With strange and often terrifying consequences, Pennsylvania ghosts appear in Pittsburgh, Radnor, Newtown, Lancaster, Hollidaysburg, Bedford, Altoona, New Hope, London Britain Township and more.
