Harpers Ferry Haunted Cottage and Museum of the Supernatural

A fun stop, whether you're a believer or skeptic. We couldn't get there during regular hours, but the owner was happy to provide a private after-hours tour and it was pretty fun -- especially the room of curiosities. They have a vampire, a Fiji mermaid, and a Jersey Devil! I even got a chance to "ghost hunt!"

Curator Vince was very nice. He was preparing for an overnight ghost hunt, but allowed me a solo tour nonetheless. Pretty neat little set-up. Funky oddities and definitely a weird/creepy feel while you're here! Appalachian Trail and KOA campground adjacent.

I am the curator for the Paranormal History Museum and Haunted Cottage of Harpers Ferry. We are adding a new attraction soon: An Exhibition of the Supernatural. It will have a vampire mummy, a fiji mermaid, Roswell Alien and more.
