Barbara Fritchie House - Real Frederick Haunt
This home now operates as a museum and is believed to be haunted by the ghost of Barbara Fritchie, the heroine of The Ballad of Barbara Fritchie, written by John Greenleaf Whittier in 1864. Haunting reports here include a chair that rocks by itself, a pair of feet that have been seen underneath a quilt that is draped over it. Lights are also known to turn on and off by themselves in the basement of the house next door, which is also rumored to be occupied by Mrs. Fritchie.
