    1. They claim to the be the site of the orphanage but so does another place on Taneytown rd. duellnig claims should be easy to sort through but this building is clearly new and the scariest thing I encountered here was the price of what seems to be a tourist trap.

    2. ok above i confused this with the other site. theis is an older building but the copy at the beginig of the item is off. the orphanage was started AFTEER the civil war by veterans. the first matron was a widow and when she remarried a new woman took over who tortured and abused children. this resulted in the ghost stories. With this site, one of at least two, that claim to be the orphanage ,the problem here is that people onthe ghost tour they run, gave a differnet story of events than the people on the desk in the shop. they were unable to keep the story straight even within the house.

    3. my friend and I did the tour here she saw a man in the corner in full uniform blue eyes gray beard she isn’t the type to just make something or scare easy, we were planning on going to the museum during the day and she said she is never setting foot into that place again
