"Show me your cemeteries, and I will tell you what kind of people you have." - Benjamin Franklin.

As one of the most historic cities in the nation, the City of Brotherly Love is a haven for unexplained phenomena. The specter of an innocent waiter murdered in 1781 is sometimes seen smashing dishes and breaking glasses at the City Tavern, once a meetinghouse for George Washington, Paul Revere and other patriots. Anguished screams and haunting footsteps are still heard among the cellblocks of Eastern State Penitentiary. Among the picturesque streets of Chestnut Hill sits Baleroy Mansion, whose plethora of supernatural hosts has earned the home the nickname as "the most haunted house in America." Author Josh Hitchens details the spooky stories of Philadelphia's past and present.
