directions: travel 322 east from harrisburg, or west from state college, and right where 11-15 meets 322, is an exit called amity hall... take the exit and the hotel is RIGHT off the exit

Amity Hall has NEVER been the site of a murder or death. It is not haunted according to previous owners and current caretakers. Don`t believe me?? Contact the Perry County Historical society. They have thoroughly researched this site recently

Hey everyone, Went to amity hall tonight..It was pretty spooky. Went around 1130. If you pull in and drive around back and pull up to the small white building in the back there is a small space between the white buidling and the hotel wall and you can enter through there without disturbing any property. Many people have ruined the inside but from my experience, We heard footsteps, with out a doubt. also the insie was much colder than it was outside. I`d Say check it out its fun!

Hey guys, so my friends and I went to Amity Hall tonight. We got there around 10pm amd didn`t leave until 12:30AM. We were hesitant about going because we didn`t want to have to break anything to get in, but thanks to the last person that left a comment on here, we knew how to get in. Once you go, it is hard to find the space to get in. But like the most recent entry, if you go to the back where the building is facing the road, you will see a little white freezer that is like maybe 5 ft from the hotel. It is a hard squeeze, but it opens right up into the kitchen area of the hotel. It was pretty creepy. It is obvious that there are NO caretakers, because the place is pretty beaten up. You have to be careful when you go in because there is broken glass from bottles, windows, and mirrors everywhere. The trip was kind of disappointing for my friends and I. We didn`t hear anything, despite the fact that we turned off our flashlights and sat in the dark in the big living room on the second floor for a while. There was a few things though that scared us. We had a digital camera and I took pictures of a lot of random stuff. In some pictures you can see a white fog, even though we weren`t smoking and we held our breaths (because some spots were SO cold you could see your breath). My friends and I got random sharp pains. When I was in the attic, after about one minute, I had the WORST pressure feeling in my head, like the worst headache, as though someone was pushing on my temples. As soon as I left the attic, the pain went away. Lets see, what else... in a lot of the pictures you can see a few orbs perfectly. Thats about it, though. At one point I thought I heard footsteps, but it could of just been the building, because old buildings do make noises. Oh, and while I was in the attic, I DID NOT see ANY blood stains, and we checked about everywhere. To WARN anyone going, if you go up to the attic, BECAREFUL! There are holes in the floor everywhere, and it would be very easy to fall through and get hurt. Overall, it was a lot of fun and some what creepy. Unfortuantly, you can tell that kids have gone in and partied and vanalyzed the place. There is stuff written on just about every wall with spray paint. But if you get the chance, I would definitely go for it. It is a fun time =)

I live near Amity Hall Inn. It is NOT haunted and there was NEVER a murder committed there. The kids in the area and from far away places have destroyed what was once a beautiful Inn that is rife with history. It is a shame that people have to destroy what doean't not belong to them just because it is empty and there... It doesn't matter how often the caretakers, and yes there are caretakers, board the windows and doors up they are broken into sometimes two times a day. The authorities are aware of what is happening at the inn on a regular basis and are in the process of taking care of it. There have been some youths arrested on the premises and I can guarantee you if you are caught with your overactive imaginations you will be punished to the fullest extent of the law. It isn't worth going into the inn and ruining the rest of your life over absolutely nothing. The haunted Inn that everyone refers to is the Amityville Horror Inn or the Amilty Hall in York county NOT Duncannon, Perry County,PA. Stay out of the place. It has been boarded up for a reason. It is empty and the owners don't want anyone getting injured by falling through a hole left by juvenile offenders.

first of all you wont ruin the rest of your life by going in, if your not a retard that is partying in there the cops will just tell you to leave. the most they could really do is fine you for tresspassing.

as much as i encourage everyone to explore haunted places, i must agree that amity hall is not haunted. i'm 20, and the first time i was there was when i was 11 years old. back then it didn't have any of the spray paint on the walls, none of the glass was broken in the mirror room. you're an idiot if you think there aren't caretakers, you obviously havent been here. yes the place looks like hell, but how do you think the windows get boarded up? go ahead, go up nd pull one of the boards off. within a week it'll be back up, nd i can guarentee it's no kid putting it up. if you drive down the little dirt road beside the house, it'll take you back past some houses nd like a river or something. there is a guy in a big house on the right that watches over the property and has a shotgun. i spent an hour one night in amity hall, just waiting for that stupid man to leave. he drives a truck, and he will shoot at you. so if you want to waste your time checking this dump out, at least cover your ass.

Yeah I don't agree with vandalizing others property but if I was just exploring for photagraphy purpose and some dumb hick with a shot gun points at me it's over.  I have a conceiled weapons permit too.  He needs to watch pointing guns at people especially kids.

ive been here many of times since i live only ten mins away. Nothings ever happened. Sure its creepy inside.but its been abandoned forever so its gonna be! While my boyfrend and my best freind and i were in it one time-alone-at night- ghost hunters came with cameras and what not. They said all they ever got was footsteps and door slamming. we never heard anything. *Note: doesnt mean it isnt haunted. if you ever go, park down the road because its NO TRESSPASSING and ppl have gotten fined for going. Also, check out the mirrored room upstairs.

I went here about a year ago with 3 friends. We broke in and walked around the whole area. Yes there is possible blood stains that can still be seen. We were there for maybe a little over an hour and really didnt see anything major. We went up towards the attic and through the mirrored room where i though i saw a 4th person behind me. After that we walked up to the attic and didnt see anything. But as we were leaving we decided to go through te mirrored room one more time. I had my two friends in front of me and i was in the back in a line formation. As we were coming out of the door closest to the stairs where the ghost of the wemon is supoose to stand we heard footsteps and glass being stepped on. We all ran out at the exact same time so it wasnt just one of us hearing somthing.

I am very interested in Amity Hall Hotel. Does anyone know who the owner is and why they never fix up the hotel. Does the owner live locally? I would appreciated any info.

To the comment above. I am not sure about an owner, but I know there is a "caretaker" that lives close by. If he sees you there with out permission, he will try to scare you off with a shot gun! I was told that they never fixed up the hotel because of the horrible things that happened there. Not sure if it is a fact or fiction though. If you wanted more I am sure you could find records on it in a local library. They have newspaper clips about the murders and the explosion. Hope i helped a little.

This place is not haunted but there are stories rampant on the internet that would make you believe it is. The Perry County Historical society denies any murders on this property. The building is vacant, has been for at least 25 years that I know of. I know there were squatters living there about 10 years ago. Its a shame people have vandalized this property for no reason. Its a beautiful old abandoned building, leave it alone.

I'm getting very mixed reviews about this location, I feel like it's probably haunted and the ones who object the fact that it is are probably some old person who thinks I'm a young kid who is going in there to cause trouble. I am very interested in the history and would like to check it out because buildings with a lot of history intrigue me. Anymore facts about this inn because it's hard to find the true story!

I've heard a lot of stories about this place and I am from the area but I would not trespass because I respect other peoples property.I think it is just all the people who go there and cause damage,it is just their guilt conscios getting to them for being rude and causing all the damage that they did.

a fence has been erected and a perimeter alrm system has been installed. I know because I installed it. thanks to all of the punks that tore the place up, its not that nice. thieves have stolen every piece of copper, steel and aluminum there could get there hands on. State Police are arresting people found there and the local District Justice is setting first offense trespassing fines at $1000.00 do your self a favor and stay away. it wont be long until the fence is electrified

I was at Amity Hall Hotel about two years ago. And I have pictures and first hand stories from four other people that went with me.. My first experience was nothing to do with a ghost or anything else. There were homeless people living inside of the place. And took it upon themselves to scare the crap out of the five of us.. We did in fact see the blood stains but again (There were homeless people there) So we don't know for fact if it was from a murder or if it was from one of the many homeless people that have made that place a home.. We did hear the footsteps and what sounded like something laughing. But like I stated we are not sure what was making the noises.. I do recommand that you don't go there.. The cops and neighbors are really touching about people being there.. If you are going to go, best time to do so is around 3am,

If you are looking for a really haunted house.. there is a house in Newville. Right off the newville exit that is HAUNTED.. I have been there twice. And both times we have caught things on film and hand items left there float up and fly at us.. Also there is a barrel in the back of the house that is empied regularly and every so often if you return the barrel is filled with what looks like blood.. The story behind the house (Which I got from a old lady that has lived in the area her whole life) A man built the house for his young bride.. After having three kids. The man took on a traveling job. The woman tired of being alone with three kids, got involved with a neighbor down the road. The man came home and caught his wife in bed with the other guy. And shot both of them.. The children hearing the noise came in and in a fit of anger he shot all three kids.. Taking the kids bodies down in the basement, he started digging up the basement floor. Only getting half-way done before having a heartattack.. Side-not there in a hole in the basement floor that is about three feet deep.. Best advise is to go in the daytime, to get a layout of the place.. There are no banisters leading upstairs and afew of the steps are missing also..

My daughter and I went looking for the Benvenue Cemetary,as my gr.grandfather was buried there,no luck couldn't find a road,it was along the river,so with all the briges & roads built it's possible that it was moved or one of the floods took it.I had her drive back to Amity Hall as my gr.grandparents and their family lived there after their home burned down in the late 1800's.It was a very lovely Restaurant that one of the L.B.SMITH'S DID,didn't last long,then stayed vacant when another young couple turned it into a restaurant that operated for 2-3yrs.My gr.grandfather was lockkeeper on the canal and his picture was haning in the hall at that time.Vandals are always breaking into this pc.of history and destroying parts of it,so now it;s completely surrounded by a very high fence.It would be great if the Historical Society or some one would restore it to it's former glory.Please stay out of the bldg don't think you have rights to go in and do more damage.Tis is part of Perry Cty history.

I agree with the person who wrote about the house in Newville above. That has has something wrong with it. Sometime there are small bones in the hole in the basement. I never noticed any bucket of blood, but have seen green flashes and then a loud noise only caught on the camera. When we were there last time our camera died on the second floor which had fully charged batteries. The house is located on Centerville Road right across the street from an elementary school. This place is 10 times scarier than Amity Hall. Although Amity Hall seems creepy I was there multiple times and nothign ever happened. It is a shame people had to destroy the property.

the best possible way to check this so called haunted hotel out is too get permission, if the caretaker,police or who ever looks over the place wer smart they should charge money to enter not a $1000 fine with out permission. and there they would be raising money to fix this nice pice of history up but plz dont ruin it for the peple who want too save it

honestly, i'm not sure about this place. We parked there a few weeks ago and took some pictures of the outside. We didnt do any damage to the place and were disappointed that there was no way we could legally get inside. Despite my beliefs that the hotel isn't haunted and the stories are simply rumors started by overzealous kids, I did feel a strong sense of "being watched" while I was there. I told all the people on my team to be careful not to disturb anything, incase we were being watched by people, but I doubt that was it. If we were being watched by real people, they probably would have reported us. Im in the process of getting full access to the hotel from the owners, so that we can lay this legend to rest once and for all.

This is real dumb that they have a fence up around the Amity Hall Inn. Me and a few friends of mine really wanted to go in to this place. Cuz im realy trying to find out if this whole murder thing is true. Now the story about the explosion i dont believe at all, cuz if there was an explosion and depending on the size of the explosion it would of done some major damage to the hotel. But by from reading these coments and looking at the hotel doesnt seem like there is any part of the house that was blown up or badly demolished

Ok if someone can give me the complete history of Amity Hall Hotel. Not just rumors or sensationalized stories but actual documented facts. Like, when was it built, when was it in business, when did it close, things like that. I am very interested in this but am having trouble finding information about it online. If anyone knows the history of it and can send me something, that would be great. I'd really appreciate that. Thanks Steph Oh and for those people who keep saying "It's NOT haunted", I personally have been there myself and can say that I think it IS haunted. Go there with a camera or flashlight and see what happens.

Does anyone know the history of the New Cumberland Public Library Building (The Benjamin House)? I had trouble finding info online about that too. When was it made into a library, what families owned it, was it really an underground railroad stop and later a civil war pow camp?? (real or rumor..?!) I have heard different things, it is an old limestone house dating back over 100 years, so I was just wondering if anyone knows the history. thank you Steph

I have been to the Amity Hall Hotel a few times. I never had the courage to go in due to the no Trespassing signs. I have been trying to find the owners to get permission and so far all I know is they live in Maryland. I am a vivid ghost hunter and will go anywhere for the experience but will not break the law to do it. I do know of an Indian Burial Ground in Juniata County that I go to all the times. I have actually heard the Indians doing chants, playing with the tom-toms, and horses galloping. If anyone knows of other places for a good hunt I would love to go, but I will not break the law to do it.

Indian Burial Ground is in Juniata County. From Mifflintown, take SR 3002 [Old Rt. 22] towards Mexico. Turn right at the intersection of Rt. 75 and drive south/west through Port Royal. Look for Academia signs. At the Spruce Hill Lunch, the road forks, Rt. 75 is the left fork and SR 3013 is the right fork. Take the right fork SR 3013. Drive approximately 1.5-2 miles to the stop sign, intersection of SR 3013 and SR 3008. Turn left and drive 1.4 miles, turning left at SR 3019. Drive 0.4 miles; the Indian Mound is in the field on the right.

I have been there 1 time about 2 years ago, as we all no this place isnt haunted and has been said several times. But as occuring to me when I went with a few ppl, in the so called trophy room with all the glass walls. We walked in and my fiends girlfriend tripped on some glass on the floor and all of our lights and cameras turned off instantly. As soon as we got her up and walked back downstairs they were able to b turned back on. I know its said not to be haunted but if not theres must be a large electrical field somewhere around that room than.

Me and a few of my freinds had went to Amity Hall tonight and it definatly gave me a very bad vibe. There are fences around the place so we didnt go in even though i had spotted an easy entrance. Aside from bad vibes & some moving shadows and things like that nothing was seen but its all boarded up. I wish to get in touch with somebody to get in legally if i cant i will enter myself but not to destroy a thing. Just to see if rumors are true and check out a formally very nice and historical place. -And to the people saying that nothing happened in the house... if you really looked into it like that i understand you but if nothing happened in there, such as no explosion nothing. Than why is there pictures of a place in the house that clearly had a horrible accident (witch im going to check out). And why have so many differant people expeirenced so many things differant and/or similar??

The Amity Hall hotel was built in the 1800s, but has been abandoned for some time and has fallen into disrepair.  The hotel also housed the injured, sick, and dying during the war. There was never any "MURDERS" that took place here as that is all only a myth. The truth of the matter is, people did die there. And there is a lot of history. I don't think I would classify the structure to be "haunted" but there is def. a feel of sadness when you approach the building. Its beautiful in the spring time. Its ashame that so many kids dont appreciate what they are looking at and just destroy all of the history. I am from Lancaster Pennsylvania and am a vivid Urban Exploration freak. I explore mostly in this area I live in but have been to other places close by. If anyone is interested in maybe getting together sometime and going out to take some pictures and search for some more abandoned areas/buildings etc contact me. Also if you want more information on the Amity Hotel or any pictures from the 1800's of it....I have some, just email me: xdecayedbeautyx@gmail.com

The Amity Hall Inn was a very nice place once upon a time. I know this personally; I worked there in the mid 1970’s The restaurant was at least 4 stars, every Saturday evening during a Penn State game you could not park or even walk in…. that is just how crowded and busy it was. Local central PA chef Walter Schrefhouser was the star attraction making the meals with a bit of his personal magic. The second floor above the restaurant had 3 rooms with huge display cases that housed the most magnificent collection of Jim Beam decanters that you could ever have imagined. Many evenings while on my break I would marvel at the grandeur of the site. I have been informed that all the glass from these displays have been shattered. What a shame! There are no ghosts, goblins or spirits haunting this once beautiful place, only the tattered remains and shattered beauty of days gone by. The Perry County Historical Society has actual non-fictional information that is available. The disrepair and poor condition is a result of sibling rivalry and the court system. Thieves are a constant problem, the PA State Police just love hauling them in front of the local District Justice; he does not tolerate them and has a zest for those that cannot respect the law. If you cannot afford visiting the DJ all I can say is stay away. The Inn did NOT belong to one of the L.B.SMITH'S, it was owned by the Mumma family, most notably old pappy Mumma and he was 70 some years old when I worked there, after he died the business empire he built (PENNSY SUPPLY) was slowly consumed by his family to the point of no return. The Inn at Amity Hall was the crown jewel of pappy Mumma’s business; it is truly a shame what time and sibling rivalry has done to it. Leave it in peace.

To the girl (Steph) asking about New Cumberland Public Library ... The Benjamin House was built in 1819 but has only been a library since 1976. I remember hearing the rumors about the 'underground railroad' running beneath the Library and the middle school when I was a student there. Apparently, beneath the stage in the auditorium, there is a 'trap door' that seems more like an old storm cellar door/entrance. I never saw it so I don't know if it even exists, but it was rumored that they let a pair of kids explore it once. Nothing bad happened according to the stories, but it only went down so far and then the path got too think to continue. It was thought that the path led beneath what is now the road and leads to the basement of the library. The place that it would have led was a cemented wall, or at least .. that's what my thought was when I tried researching it fifteen years ago. There isn't any written history about the railroad running through there and if there really was anything, it was probably just a storm route or something. Either way, it's sealed off and the library has gone through so many remodels that anything that might have been there is probably long caved in. Aside from the borough, the only owners I've been able to find out about are the Shelly's who built it and Mr. & Mrs. Rowland Benjamin who deeded it over.

I am a ghosthunter and would love to learn more about Amity Hall. I did notice that it is all boarded up and there is fencing around it. I would however love to try to get in touch with the owners to see if I could get permission to go inside to take some pictures and explore. I do not want to do anything illegal since my son's father would take him away from me in a heartbeat if I got in trouble with the law. If anyone has more info. on this place please email me at krhunt_420@yahoo.com.

Some friends I are probably going to visit this place because I am very interested in haunted areas and history, old buildings...etc. Im very spiritual so I should be able to sense an energy. My friend drove up there with her boyfriend and felt such a horrible energy that she started to hyperventalate and cry for no reason. She told me she'd go in with me though, and we'll have a few strong men with us xD Im hoping to go this weekend. Im reading very mixed things. Well, all I know is I heard a guy went crazy, killed his kids, his wife and all the workers in the Inn. I want to go there and see what happens and what I feel and experience before I believe that many people were slain. I can beleive and wife, children and a maid or two...but all the workers? Thats hard to beleive. If I find this website again, I'll tell you how my adventures at Amity Hall went.

I just have one thing to say...shame on who ever torched Amity Hall Inn. There was no reason for that to happen. To have all those fire fighters away from there family last night and this morning risking there lives to put out the fire. I really hope you have problems sleeping at night. You will get caught. You ruined a piece of history.

Amity Hall was burnt down this morning. What a shame! Could have been restored to its natural beauty and by the way; it's not haunted.

so sad to hear about the fire last night. I hope that whoever did that gets caught. What a wonderful piece of history it was. It really could have been something beautifully restored. The grounds date back to early settlers.

It amazes me how many stories there are surrounding this place. I think it is very tragic that this place was left go the way it was. I would of loved to have had the Inn and restored it. I was there when I was a teenager many years ago. Nothing happened to me personally, however I have a relative who worked at the Inn and told me a few stories that have pertained to the place being haunted. Some stories involved other ppl that worked at the Inn and their experiences. They were scared to death to go into certain areas of the Inn because of this. When we were younger the story was of a John Brown(?) that supposedly hung himself in one the rooms. I know my relative was not joking with me because they don't joke about that stuff. They were really scared. When I was there I never valdalized the place I was just infactuated with the history of it. I found beautiful drawings or sketches. It is such ashame that this place was left go. I was so sad to see it falling apart and even more saddened when I heard of the fire that destroyed what was left of it. I guess it is definately a different time from when I was a kid to the kids now! I hope my children never do the things that these kids now days do. Everyone likes to have fun and check out stories of hauntings when your young, just quit vandalizing what isn't yours.

All those of you who "would have loved to own and restore" this piece of history, why didn't you buy it? It's been for sale off and on for many years--any competent real estate agent could have legally shown it to you and worked with you on the financing--I showed it several times but the damage done by the trespassers scared off most potential buyers. I'm sorry that it's now been destroyed by yet more idiot trespassers.

FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER VISITED THIS ABANDON HOTEL, I GUESS YOU ALL SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH FELONIES LIKE THE 5 YOUNG MEN THAT DID EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAD DONE IN THE PAST, UNFORTUNATELY FOR THESE BOYS THEIR SITUATION GOT OUT OF CONTROL AND WERE UNABLE TO CONTAIN THE BLAZE. IF THIS WAS SUCH A "WONDERFUL HISTORICAL SIGHT" WHY THE HELL WAS IT LET GO FOR 20 YEARS???? EVERYONE WHO IS NOW IN TEARS AND SO CONCERNED SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THAT 20 YEARS AGO, NEVER HAVE HEARD ANY CONCERNS FOR THIS "HISTORICAL SIGHT" UNTIL NOW. AND AS FOR THE FIREFIGHTERS, I COMMEND THEM FOR THEIR EFFORTS BUT THIS IS WHAT THEY CHOSE TO DO AND THESE BOYS SHOULD NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE RISKS THEY CHOOSE TO TAKE.

I would like to also comment on the supposed historical place, I have lived in PA all my life and never heard of it! If it was such a great piece of history then why was it left to rot and vandalized. You people have so much time to sit on the internet and bash people you don't even know, why didn't you volunteer all that time to "restore" this building you so love?? I am sure that you were all perfect in your young years and NEVER did anything wrong?? I think not, you just didnt get caught. I have read all the above comments about people being in there (which were trespassing) shame on you! They all clearly state how dangerous it was inside. The place is gone, no one else will be able to go in there and possibly get hurt! Another thing were any of you there or are you psychic?? I am sure these boys did not say hey lets go burn down amity hall.... there is more to this story why dont you wait until the "truth" is revealed before you start calling people names and pointing fingers...maybe a cigarette was dropped?? Maybe they had a fire that they thought they could contain to sit and wait for something spooky to happen... OR maybe the ghosts did it???

You are Prolly one of the Parents of the kids that started the Fire and think that there kids do no wrong and now your name is disgraced because they will be setting in jail for the next 5 to 10 yrs, and boo hoo poor kids. more than likely all of those firefighters are Volunteer yes I said Volunteer what if there was no Firefighters and your house was on fire well there goes your whole life oh well tomorrows another day yeah right. what if those kids would have gotten trapped in there oh just let it burn because it's abandoned it wasn't abandoned or the windows would not have been boarded up and the grass would not have been mowed.

BooHooHoo...I hope these adults are punished to the full extent of the law. The imature arsons were not kids or boys they were adults. Maybe there parents should of taught them not to play with fire when they were little boys, then this would of never happened. I'm so glad to here they are being charged for each fire fighter that faught to put the fire out. This was a stupid and very selfish act. The fact is tresspassing is tresspassing. These adults didn't use any common sense and deserve every thing they get. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?

Once again IF YOU DON'T HAVE PERMISSION STAY OUT

While securing the exterior of the building, police said they encountered five men trying to flee. Two were arrested at the scene. The other three were found by police after two vehicles they were traveling in were found parked in the woods. Arrested were Somwag Kakhankham, 19, of Boiling Springs, Derek Weigle, 19, of Carlisle, Jason White, 22, of Carlisle, Justin Baitsell, 19, of Gardners and Darrius Misner, 18, of Gardners. A state police spokesman said investigators are still sorting out who will be charged with what offenses. Charges are expected to include arson and burglary, the spokesman said.

The owner of the Inn died and that's what caused the closure of it. Yesterday, 5-19-09, 5 teenagers/young adults, caught it on fire and it is almost completely gone. Sorry kids, it probably took the "spirits" with it.

I actually met with a realtor from RSR realty about 4 years ago. My family and took a walk throught the building and all around the land. I was not fortunate enough to have stepped foot int he place while it was in operation. I started college in 2001 in Harrisburg which brought past the building everyday. I went home one day and told my mom how much I had loved the building and couldn't stop thinking about it. She informed that my great-grandmother grew up there in 1900-1911. She and her family lived and worked the Pumpkin farm at the time. And that my mom remembers the stories of the "murder" in the attic of the children and my great-grandmother and her sister trying to clean it up. (true, I don't know) anyway, my dad (who had built homes and other buildings from ground up and I had discussed things we could do to make the stable enough and do it cheap enough to possibly get grants and people from the neighborhood to help restore this poor old building. We were so excited. We thought this is it. Finally after all of these years we just may make the difference. A few days later the realtor called me at work and informed me that the owner agreed to a deal of $5,000/mo AFTER restoration was complete $0 until then unless exceedes 5 years without any option to buy. Which I thought was acceptable. She could have began charging from that first foot in the door. I talked it over with my family we agreed. A few days later I received another call fromt he realtor stating Mrs. Mumma wanted my bank account info. To basically see what kind of money I had. I didn't know this women, she doesn't know me. I informed of my full intentions and our plans. The grant info and the work that was going to be done. I felt there was no reason for her to have that info. I could understand anything else but, not that. At that time I had dropped all conversation of leasing the place. That is all that was offered to me a lease. She not once offered to sell neither had the realtor. I WOULD have taken the building in the shape and dismay it was in I would take it now. Because I have a heart and these little punks that should have been at home in bed getting rested for school or work broke it. I don't know the story behind Mrs. Mumma but I feel sorry for her. Because I don't know if she has held on to it for all of these years as a tax rightoff or spite or because it was her husbands true love and that is what she has left of him. But, I do know, that because she couldn't overcome her power and her high horse and realize that I was not asking anything of her but, to let me restore the building and I would pay her to allow me the pleasure. Now, the information could have been misconstruded between her and I. We conversed strickly between the realtor. But, If anyone on this site is the CARETAKER and for those of you that think there isn't one you are wrong.or anyone that knows who this is. Please let me know. I would love to talk with him. I just want everyone int he community that is feeling the same way I am that the iniative was taken it just wasn't allowed. Mrs. Mumma and I should have met and dicussed things and MAYBE we could have prevented this tragedy from happening. This is a very historic site and will always be. However, what nobody realizes is that once it's gone the only missing is the pleasure of seeing the building. There will still be stories told and memories that brign a tear to your eye and for another 181 years people will be talking about the mansion that was stood on this lot.

My great uncle once owned the Amity Hall home, which was adjacent to the Amity Hall Inn. He was infamous for trying to research the property -- even paid a professional historian/geneologist -- and then "spiced" up the story on his own. Never heard about any hauntings, but heard recently that Amity Hall Inn was the victim of arson. Allegedly teenage vandals have been caught & charged.

You are not from this area? About one week ago. They were between ages of 18 and 22. As stated I don't know if the story of the blood on the floor is true. But, I do know that my mom said that she remembers her grandmother telling her the story and she called to clearify with my grandmother. Doesn't make much of a difference now. It is what it is. Just out of curiousity the grave yard behind the old Amity Hall home is there dates on those tombs? I have info from the Historical Society that says that building was the original INN and I'm just wondering if the papers aren't mistaking the dates of the INN for the home. The original builders (father and son) are to be buried there.

To the person who answered my questions about the New Cumberland Library,(the Benjamin House), thank you! I really appreciate it. I've known that place my whole life. I've heard something before about the underground railroad there, that is interesting, but didn't know about the literally underground passageway between the school and library. Very interesting! It's not one of the official "haunted places" everyone talks about like Amity Hall, but I personally have had some *interesting* experiences there and friends have said the same thing. About 10 years ago I took a picture of the outside of the library and a big black blob appeared in it. It may have been my camera strap and the wind but who knows! The library is a public place, not like private property like Amity Hall so it is perfectly ok to check it out. The upstairs is particularly quiet and spooky. You mentioned the Shelley family built it, I wonder if they are the same family that owned Shelley's Sporting Goods in New Cumberland?

To tell you the truth I get tired of people saying that a place is not haunted. Just because something did not happen to one person there doesn't mean it isn't haunted. Some people are more sensitive to those things than others. Or maybe some people are particularly targeted or disliked by a ghost (ie, the woman spirit at Amity Hall who does not like men.) Even if a murder did not happen there, it could still be haunted. Sometimes I think people get too wrapped up the scary movie and ghost story idea of a haunted place. There doesn't have to be an elaborate story behind it. Have an open mind and trust people when they share thier experiences. It takes a lot of guts to share things like that.

Do you really think the Perry County Historical Society would talk about ghosts? I mean really they probably wouldn't want to scare people. Maybe even if there was a murder there, maybe they would be reluctant to say because amity hall gets so much attention already.

To kier 568 I got a picture of the white mist too, I know what you mean. We first thought maybe it was exhaust from the car (we took pics from the car) but it was in only one picture. I also got a pic of a greenish-yellow orb that was kind of big.

I knew it was only a matter of time before somebody would express their opinion that the arsonist should not have been charged with risking the lives of the firefighters....I am OUTRAGED at that opinion!!!! To the poster who feels this way...have you read the news stories? Those guys had all the supplies needed to start the fire with them when they went to the inn. My husband has some inside intel on the situation from two different angles...one of the guys is claiming that they had lit a "torch" to be able to see where they were going and claims that's how the fire started. However...when the state police arrived and fire depts were called out there were already flames shooting from the second story. That fire had been burning for a while and five of the guys who started it were still on scene...seems kinda fishy to me. After all, it is 2009...there's such a thing as flashlights. As for their charges for causing danger to the firefighters...they deserve each and every one of those charges. These men (the firefighters) may be doing this as a choice but there lives were put in danger nonetheless. My husband is a volunteer with one of the departments that got called out. Were it not for the fact that we had an early morning appt he would have been on that scene and I would not have slept the remainder of the night. He volunteers with the department to save lives and to save people's homes. When you are involved in a serious accident or your home catches on fire you expect these men who get NO PAYMENT for what they do to show up to help you. They may volunteer for the task but it's not a responsibility to be taken lightly. They put their lives in danger everytime they go out. Everytime my husband leaves the house to respond to a fire I know I could receive a phone call telling me that he'd been hurt or worse...If a fire is accidental that's one thing but when people are trespassing and intentionally set a fire that's another. The people being charged with this were in a place they should not have been in and were carrying supplies they should not have had. This fire was most likely NOT accidental and these men deserve to be charged with risking the lives of those firefighters. The courts can sort out what really happened and what their actual sentencing should be.

Houses are burned everyday and and people actually die and places burn that actually meant something to the community more than an abondoned house, but most of them arnt charged with risking the lives of the brave men who come to put out the blaze wether its arson or accident.  Whoever wrote that comment above me here shouldnt be with a man thats a firefighter simple as that, he does it by his own choice witch makes it  his own risk these things happen everyday and it'll never get better so get used to it.  I was at amity hall inn many times, even only a few weeks before it burned down than i came back from vacation only to see the actual house/front end pretty much gone with damage to the rest of the building all around; guess im not going back in again, not like i ever damaged anything.  The place may or not have been haunted but i know i heard noises, seen a door slam shut in front of me, the camera died after 4 pictures and had the worst vibe ever.  Whoever burnt the place down deserves to be in jail most definatly, but to be charged for risking each firefighters life is bullsh*t period.  My cousin and grandfather are dedicated firefighters and i still feel its bullsh*t and they would 2.

True that, to the last comment left.  Ive been up there before the damage and after and if its true that its finally getting torn down im going once more.  But the opinions made above arnt supposed to be here but the opinion about how the kids SHOULD get the charge for every fire fighter is bogus, thats my opinion.  Amity Hall used to be beautiful and in its own way still was right before the fire, now its a hotel without a main house with some damage to the roof.  Big fence still perfectly in tact though the alarm system on the fence is no more and u can walk right through any door into the dangerious and damaged place.  Whoever burnt it down really is low and thats stupid why would u do that???

If anybody wants to go to a very interesting and scary place you should go to the old york county prison. i was there last night with 4 of my friends we whent around 12. They says the place is sealed up but on the right side is a big hole you can walk through. the only bad thing about it is that its in a very bad part of the city. so you never know if theres gonna be crackheads or gang members in there. its about 6 stories tall filled with very old 6x8 prison cells.

I was in Amity Hall in 2005 before it was burnt down. It is a truly scary place! It was a beautiful place that was abused by local teens and it is sad to know that people can be so disrespectful to something that isn't their's. I had a lot of spooky things happen to my friend's and I while we where there. I have ton's of pictures from it, it was something! Its just ashame that people are just so disrespectful regardless if it no one was living in it.

People, people, people...The Amity Hall Inn is not and never was haunted. There never was a murder and there are no ghosts. Only the overactive imaginations of young kids going into places they have no business being in the first place. I have been in this area for years and know the owners personally.. They can't sell Amity Hall Inn because it is tied up in the estate and one of the owners won't allow it to be sold. They have been offers millions for the Inn and it would have been a great bed and breakfast..I know of the gentleman that wanted to lease it and restore it and I know why the deal didn't go through..Now it is too late. It will be torn down and that is all there will be to it.. An empty lot will be all that will exist of Amity Hall Inn. My advice is to stay away from the Inn. There is nothing there..NOTHING BUT TROUBLE! THERE ARE CARETAKERS BUT THEY DON'T CARRY GUNS AND POINT THEM AT ANYONE..BUT THEY DO CALL THE POLICE. As for the firefighters..that is what they do..they fight fires...They chose that profession even though there is no pay and a hugh cost for the equipment. I for one appreciate everything they do for our community..They are a great group of men and deserve accolades for risking their lives everytime their tones go off. As for the people that were caught breaking the law..they deserve everything they got. There are others that deserve to be in prison with them but they lawyered up the minute that they were caught and their rich daddies got them off. NO TRESPASSING MEANS "STAY OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

 I dont beleive you know half of that shit.   Ive been there a few times my freind knows the caretaker who lives right up the road and i dont live very far from it maybe 45min, im in york i can walk to the abandoned prison people are talking about up the page a little.  The actual owner or say origonal owner lives in florida and is like 85 years old.  I did alot of reasearch before i was ever there to try and get permission to go in.  If the place is going to get torn down why isnt it yet??  Its been a long time since the fire and they havnt touched it i was just there about a week ago.  And it isnt just young kids that have went there either theres several adults that have went, and those kids that burnt it up deserve alot for burning the place down but getting a charge because somebody else wants to risk their lives are bs, what happens if a fire is a accident but the person gets charged than charged for every fire fighter that decided to show up?   Is that fair?  No.   Either way Amity Hall is still there about 70% of it the rest is rubble, the fence is there and since its burned i havnt seen anybody there witch i did often before.  You can see inside parts in the daytime, you could still walk around inside if you wanted but i wouldnt see why you would take a long trip for it its not worth it plus it is tresspassing and since the fire the charges are probably doubled.  Its sad, it was a beautiful building and still kind of is...  I hope it dont get torn down though it serves no use now.

I know what I wrote to be fact. One of the two caretakers is my brother and the other is my husband. The building will be torn down and hauled away as soon as the bids all come in. But then this is none of your business. Nothing that goes on regarding the Inn is anyone's business. Just stay away from the place. No trespassing means "STAY OUT."!!!!!

Please be aware, some vandals looking for a good time burnt it down, all that appears there now is a slab of concrete, I went there as a kid some 65 years ago, it was a delightful site to see, the wood work alone was priceless, it was a busling truck stop, as well as a good diner. I wish your generation could have seen it, but then you would not have understood the importants of Amity Hall. Good luck in your venture. Troop 89 of Enole finished their 50 Miler for Boy Scouts at the landing, quite a remberance for the Scouts. God Bless. Signed:: A friend of time

Been there before . its kinda strange during the day never went at night. but i am planning to real soon. for sure something there. no care takers was there almost the whole day parked right out front no cops either. it is however surrounded by a fence but no problem. theirs a hole in the back. i suggest checking out the area that appears to be a bar. and the hallway to the back of the building. something for sure in the hallway. take something from there i guarantee youll bring it back in a hurry. dont believe me? try it.

 I haven't heard or read about a cease and decist order being served to "John Q. Public" to not talk about the Inn.  So...keep talking folks.  Many of us on this board understand what "No Trespassing" means and abide by said meaning.  It's those that have a blatant disregard for others properties that this applies to. 

If people are interested in this Inn, whether for so-called paranormal activity or just the historical aspects, why not provide people with pictures?  You could give the ghost, paranormal and history buffs out there something interesting to study.

my friends and i went to amity hall last night and we saw EVERYTHING. we pulled up and got out of the car and all of our phones died. we found our way in and sure enough, at the top of the stairs, there was a woman there, just staring at us! as we were walking away from the steps she started screaming at the top of her lungs. then we went into this room and we could see a man hanging on the wall. no movement, his "ghost" was just hanging there. as we made our way to the kitchen we heard footsteps. while in the kitchen i felt really uneasy and told my friends we needed to leave but they didnt listen. then we saw a little boy, bout 10 and a little girl, about 7 sitting at some type of a breakfast bar. the boy was just staring at us and the little girl was trying to talk to him. then the little girl started talking to us, i couldnt really make out what she was saying but i didnt manage to hear this, "people like you come here all the time to stare at us. why do you want to look at us?" then she started walking towards us and my friends stared laughing, and the little girl started talking again. i think she said something like "you know we died here, its not funny." then she started screaming and crying. all of a sudden she stopped and walked out of the room. we quickly made our way out of the house and once we got into the car our phones powered back on. THIS PLACE IS HAUNTED. i saw what i saw and it WAS REAL. very scary, i recomend it for people who like a good scare every once in a while.

It's burned down now apparently. However, I still want to drive by and see where the remains are and if there is still any 'ghostly' activity. Probably nothing - who knows.

Ive been wanting to stop by this inn for a long time,to see the remains.I am fasinated with old building and history.So finally today,I drove by.Its such a shame that someone(s) torched this building.There are still remains left and get a good idea of how it looked before.It is heavily fenced in with barbed wire and signs everywhere.
