Really interesting trip. Low key and great way to learn about Shepherdstown. The guide was really fun and engaging. It wasn’t scary, but had some eery stories mixed in with history lessons and accounts by locals. Had a really nice time!

Janet is a great tour guide! Even on a cold January evening, she gave us an excellent 90-minute tour of the town. Many stories shared, explaining the history of the town, the cemeteries, historic buildings, and various sightings. Would recommend 10/10 as a small tour group with friends!
