Unusual Destinations: Paranormal Activity at the Pry House?

Pry House, Keedysville, MD

The Pry House served as Union General George McClellan’s headquarters during the September 17, 1862, Battle of Antietam. As casualties mounted on this bloodiest day in American history, the Pry farmhouse and barn became a field hospital. Union General Israel Richardson was gravely wounded and taken to an upstairs room of the house. He lingered near death for over a month. With wife Frances by his side, Richardson expired in November.

In modern times, the Pry House has been of interest to paranormal investigators. Various unexplained noises, flickering lights, and screams have been reported. Most curious of all, though, have been reports of a female apparition in 19th century attire seen on the second floor. Could it have been Frances?

Find it at 18906 Shepherdstown Pike (MD Rte 34), Keedysville, MD, (301) 416 2395, www.civilwarmed.org/pry/plan.
