Ghosts are good business.
During his 14 years as a ghost tour guide at the Historic Farnsworth House Inn property in downtown Gettysburg, Pa., he said he’s experienced enough peculiar events to believe that otherworldly beings are present. He’s smelled the scent of blooming flowers in February, listened to screaming women who could feel the presence of ghosts nearby and watched surveillance videos indicating the presence of spirits.
Staub is also a realist. He knows many of his Historic Farnsworth House Inn ghost tour guests do not believe in ghosts and no amount of evidence will convince them. And that’s why he said he’s so excited about the grand opening of Gettysburg’s Haunted Address from 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday.
Regardless of whether his visitors believe in ghosts or not, he said the new indoor attraction he designed will help educate those who pass through it. Gettysburg’s Haunted Address is located next to the Historic Farnsworth House property, where ghost tours have been taking place for 25 years.
