It was June 23rd 2013 when my wife and I returned to the Farnsworth House B&B to spend another night with Jeremy (the ghost boy), and anyone else who came along. We had just checked in to our room when we had our first paranormal experience. Two plastic soldiers that had been standing on a table were accidentally stepped on when they showed up on the floor. One of Jeremy's favorite toys is a farm set that I lay out on the bathroom window sill. Before long the farmer figure appeared on top of the bottom window. As my wife sat in the bathroom a plastic pig flew off the sill, sailed across the room and landed on the floor!
As we were leaving for supper we noticed some of our clothes had been removed from the suitcase and were lying on the floor. In the morning Jeremy had played with his farm again by moving fence pieces and adding a chicken, a rabbit, and a cow to the corral. That night we heard the odd door closing and squeak here and there, but with the window air conditioner running all night it was impossible to hear the disassociated footsteps that are common here.
Before I tell you if anything happened on day two let me tell you about another haunted B&B in town. The Tilly Pearce House, one block up Baltimore St., provided us with plenty of impossible events on a past trip to Gettysburg. Apparently a man fell into financial distress and, unable to cope, took his own life in the attic with a gun. The story goes on to say that a loud bang is sometimes heard at night mimicking the event. This bang did not happen during our stay but we were both startled when the bathroom door slammed loudly when neither of us was near it. One window was open so we shut it in case that was the cause. Later, with my wife applying makeup and myself lying in bed, I watched the door slam so hard that it didn't stay shut and bounced open a foot or so. One of us said that it didn't stay shut this time and it immediately slammed again, staying closed!
Later we watched a book fly off the bed and land on the floor. That night my wife asked to be covered with the throw from the bottom of the bed and I cooperated. When I got back to my side she said, "Aren't you going to cover me?" I looked and the throw was pulled off and hanging from the bottom of the bed!
OK, day two at the Farnsworth now. The farm animals continued to change and we experienced the TV changing stations as well. Our room has two locks, only one of which I have a key for. The bottom lock has no key and should only be used if you are in the room or you will be locked out. My wife wasn't feeling well so I went out for a while and when I returned the second lock had been set from the inside and my wife had not done it. While my wife tried to rest the sheets kept getting pulled off.
We have been to Gettysburg many times and are drawn to it like a moth to a flame. We will just keep coming back.
