Philadelphia may be the Cradle of Liberty, but it's also a city spooked by true ghastly stories! Come experience the haunted side of the city that inspired Edgar Allan Poe to write "The Murders of Rue Morgue" and "The Raven"; a city frightening enough to contain Bram Stoker's research for "Dracula" and inspire David Lynch's "Eraserhead." Following your expert local guide as you discover the haunted history of the nation's most historic city, hear accounts of love lured specters, tormented souls of war, and the sorrowful woes of traitors and the repentant dead at Old St. Mary's and Old St. Joe's. Visit notable locations like Independence Hall, City Tavern, Washington Square, and Dr. Physick's House, with potential sightings of desecrating German Soldiers, tragic Edgar Allan Poe, and Bishop White's murderous cook, and maybe even a dancing Ben Franklin!
