YORKS MOST HAUNTED LOCATIONS
Join us as we investigate TWO of York's most haunted locations.
First we will visit:
The Codorus Furnace built back in 1765 as part of the Hellam Iron Works in York County. At one time it was mainly engaged in supplying cannon balls to the colonists who were fighting for independence during the Revolution. It has long since been abandoned, but visitors say that it is anything but deserted! Witnesses claim that a woman in white is often seen leaving the furnace house before making her way down the hill towards the Furnace itself. It is not known who she is and there has been a great deal of speculation over the years. Some say that she is a former resident of the house, others feel that she must be the wife of a former foragemaster and some even think she might be the victim of some long forgotten crime!
Then we will make our way
Cookes House built in 1761 and is one of the oldest buildings in the whole of York County. It was originally built by Johannes Guckes, who later became known as John Cookes. One of the many house guests that visited over the years was Thomas Paine who stayed there when the Continental Congress met in York. As you can see, it is certainly a historic building. It also happens to be one of the most haunted places in York PA. There have been reports of a variety of paranormal activity including the appearance of two different apparitions – an older man who appears as more of a shadowy figure and paces up and down in the room and a blonde girl who is wearing a rose colored gown. The current owner, York City Mayor Michael Helfrich has lived there since 2008 and said that his only personal experience has been a chair pulling back from the dining table when nobody was there! We will be investigating the grounds only and NOT inside the house.
Finally we end at the
The Reliance is now open for investigations. Explore the kitchen, dinning are, bar and basement. Built in 1904 at the beginning of the West York Incorporation. The area was all farmland in the 1900's. After the death of Maggie Banister her children decided to sell off the farm and land was then parceled out.
The building has known haunts of Chuck and Bob who were once Firemen, when the building operated as a fire station, and hang out in the bar area. Also haunts in both the kitchen of a grouchy male spirit and and a sad female in the woman's bathroom. But the basement won't disappoint either as you encounter an old farmer and his dog.
DETAILS: 6:00 pm until midnight. Tickets are $32 and limited.
