British soldiers fire at Native Americans scattered about the forest during the 255th anniversary of the Battle of Bushy Run at Bushy Run Battlefield in Penn Township. Visitors may encounter spirits in the night during a ghost tour at the site in June.

Bushy Run Battlefield will hold a ghost tour from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. June 1, offering visitors a chance to experience the Penn Township historical site in a new way.

Facility tour guides and a visiting paranormal group will lead the nighttime exploration of the battlefield and try to stir up a ghost or two.

Visitors will learn about events that took place in August 1763, hear some ghost stories and paranormal legends related to the battlefield and see some ghost hunters in action, according to the museum’s website.

Advance reservations are not required.

Flashlights, friends and cameras — cellphone, disposable and digital all are suitable — are suggested.

A tour guide and paranormal group member with “ghost detecting equipment” will accompany each group of visitors, the site adds.

Cost is $20 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under (who must be accompanied by an adult).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
