Cashtown Inn - Reb Haunted

Historic inn that was Confederate headquarters on June 30 and July 1, 1863, prior to the battle of Gettysburg. Supposedly haunted by the ghost of Confederate general A.P. Hill. Served as the background in a major scene in the 1993 movie "Gettysburg," starring Martin Sheen.

[Mike Duffy, 04/26/2013]

Reputed ghostly vibes throughout. General Hill's room contains a rocking chair that spontaneously rocks, and figure in an old Confederate uniform has been seen in the hall and bar area.
