Ellis was a great story teller. Ellis clearly has a passion for history, and she seems to enjoy her ...


  • Remain Calm

    No one is going to be hung, that stopped in 1915, but if you do see a ghost, try and keep your camera handy, we publish your best pics!

  • Be polite

    Philadelphians have a rough exterior but don't take rudeness kindly unless you play for the Eagles and they are losing. Then they might throw snowballs at you (true story, even the Mayor threw a few!)

  • Do not provoke the spirits

    Although locals have hearts of gold, they make for mean ghosts if provoked, again, no provoking necessary if you play for an underperforming local sports team, 76's, Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, Union...

  • Stay Together

    The grid system that Billy Penn designed makes it easy to stay together, the first in the US, so look alive and stick with the group.

  • Watch your step!

    Philly needs no more ghosts, so be careful on the slippery cobbles and stay in the world of the living.
