We have visited the Farnsworth House Inn in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on three different occasions. Each time, we not only discovered something new and interesting about the location, but our research into the haunted and paranormal realm is always stimulated by these visits.
As mentioned above, we spent at least one night at the Farnsworth House Inn on three different locations. We were there in 2013, 2015, and 2018, all in the month of July.
After attending a ghost tour at the location in 2013, we spent the night in the “Sweeny Room”. This room has paranormal claims of a little boy spirit named Jeffrey who likes to move around objects in the room and play with various toys that are provided by the Inn.
We did not have much experience with the moving of the object, but we did pick up some unusual activity with the KII meter (see our Evidence Review Video)
We returned to the Farnsworth Inn in 2015, this time spending the night in two separate room. The first night, we stayed in the Eisenhower Room. This is where Marianne had a dream that she had a paranormal experience of sleep paralysis. Or was it a dream?
The second night, we were able to perform an investigation in the basement and attic of the building as well and moved to the Lincoln Bedroom for the evening. Marianne conducted and EVP session right next to the window where it is believed that the shot was fired that killed Jenny Wade.

The second night in 2015, we spent the evening in the “Lincoln” Room at the Farnsworth House. The claims in the room are that people see soldiers walking through the room, which would make sense due to the fact that this was the area of the garden back during the Battle of Gettysburg. We stayed in this room again when we returned in 2018 as well. We did a special “behind-the-scenes” video for our Patreon subscribers about this room. One thing worth noting about this room, the bed is really high up off the ground.
While we were here in 2018, we did a live stream from our room. During this live stream we also conducted a spirit box session.
Of course when we stay at the Farnsworth Inn, we have to have at least one meal in the restaurants. This past year, Marianne ordered the Pumpkin Fritters to try them out.
We liked them so much, this became the topic of one of her “Haunted History” Recipes. You can check out that video at:

To wrap up this blog post, and this week we have spent discussing and talking about this location, we published a “Location” video about the Farnsworth Inn, which will talk about the history of the building, our personal experiences, and why we believe the location could be haunted.
