I moved to Harpers Ferry in September 2009. I am a paranormal researcher and author and I moved out here to start a new paranormal research team. The headquarters for our team is the Booth House, otherwise known as the Haunted Cottage. David Hartman, a local historian in Harpers Ferry told us how the home became known as the Booth House. A friend introduced David to a nice man by the name of Roy booth. He and his father were moonshiners and relatives of John Wilkes booth. Roy told David what he knew about john. As most people know, Junius, Edwin and John Booth were very famous actors. Like today's movie stars, they were well-known across the United States.
Harper's Ferry has been a tourist area for many years. It's not too far from D. C. and could be accessed by train. One of the attractions that still exists today is the Apollo theater in Martinsburg. It presented numerous plays and operas. Jefferson, Jackson and Washington also visited the area. However, route 340 did not exist- only Charlestown road. Roy said John Wilkes booth used to rent a home in Harper's Ferry for summer use. That home is what is currently known as the ''haunted cottage'' on old Taylor lane. Being a charmer of the ladies, booth had many lady friends. One of them, Pam, stayed with booth during his stay in Harper's Ferry. Recently, the home was on land that belonged to Frank Cavalier. It was a dairy farm, but there were also rentals and tenant homes on the property. Charles town, WV was the main producer of tin roofs in the united states.
