The City of Brotherly Love might also be called the City of Restless Spirits.
To walk in Philadelphia is to literally travel in the footsteps of history. And there are those who contend that the spirits of those who shaped that history walk with you.
Some of the tales are simply too far-fetched to believe--like the assertion that the statue of city founder William Penn comes to life and walks around during the full moon. But there are some reliable witnesses who swear to a number of recurring paranormal events, among them the sightings of Hessian soldiers in the cellars of the General Wayne Inn, "the most haunted place in America." HAUNTED PHILADELPHIA investigates the most persistent tales of spooks and ghosts in America's colonial capitol, speaking with eyewitnesses and experts in the occult. Historians and scholars offer their insights into the back stories of these hauntings, and we'll see actual photos of some of the apparitions.
Betsy Ross, Edgar Allan Poe and the "Screaming Lady" are just a few of the spectral figures in the spotlight as we tour HAUNTED PHILADELPHIA.
