Old Toll House paranormal Investigation

August 13, 2022 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Old Toll House 323 E. Main St. Waynesboro, PA

THE OLD TOLL GATE HOUSE….
The Toll Gate House property was originally owned by the Waynesboro-Greencastle-Mercersburg Turnpike Company and was used to collect tolls from about 1846 until after World War I. Later, the property was home to a gas station, grocery store, tavern and used car lot. Later, the American Red Cross had an office there.
When the Civil War came along, Waynesboro was again cast in the role of a “frontier town”, this time because of its close proximity to the Mason-Dixon line. Historians tell us that residents of the area spent half their time burying and digging up their possessions and fleeing north toward Harrisburg. Among those fleeing when the Confederates entered Waynesboro was John Phillips, cashier of the local bank. Mr. Phillips made it to safety with the bank’s cash and valuables, his wife and son, all loaded into one carriage. Most residents stayed on, watching apprehensively, as 75,000 Confederate soldiers headed north to Gettysburg. Waynesboro was under Confederate rule for 15 days.
