Ghost hunting also plays a large factor in the experience of Gettysburg. Paranormal activity at the Inn has been quantified by those who investigate hauntings, and the Inn at Herr Ridge has recently been featured on SyFy's "Haunted Collector" paranormal series in 2013.

Rooms located in the original building contain diaries in which guests have documented ghost encounters.
Herr Ridge offers more than a night away in a beautiful, comfortable bed and breakfast, but is an excellent place to begin your journey in learning the history of Gettysburg. Established in 1815, the property functioned as a local tavern until 1828 when it was purchased by Frederick Herr. Herr also ran the property as a tavern and lodging for travelers. Additionally, Herr Tavern was a major stop in the Underground Railroad. The property played a pivotal role in helping slaves to escape. Later, the tranquility of rural Gettysburg was shattered by the Civil War. The Battle of Gettysburg was played out in the fields surrounding Herr Tavern. During the Civil War the tavern functioned as the first confederate hospital. In the main, historic building of the property, Rooms 1, 2 and 3 were the surgical rooms during the war.
Frederick Herr owned the tavern until his death in 1868. After his death, the tavern was sold to the Reading family. The building was subsequently bought and sold over the years, eventually being used as a farm in the early 1900s. In 1977, Steven Wolf purchased and restored the property into a lodging and dining facility for both locals and travelers.
Throughout history Gettysburg has been a central location for a wide range of travelers. Even today, Herr Ridge remains central to major cities on the East Coast. Make Herr Ridge a destination on your East Coast vacation, part of a family day trip, or just a nice evening out!

"This place has evolved into a really extraordinary culinary experience. Just wonderful, wonderful. The history of the place speaks for itself and the food is every bit up to the measure of the history."
- Sarah R, Gettysburg, PA
"We stayed at the Inn and at dinner time, decided to try their restaurant. Probably one of the best decisions we could have made. The food was out of this world and the service superb! Everything was perfect and fresh (they pride themselves on using locally produced food items to ensure freshness). The restaurant was one of the best places we have ever eaten at. This place is a GEM."
