House of Frankenstein Wax Museum transports visitors into a world of horror, history, and wax dioramas

"Holdouts like House of Frankenstein (or the John Brown Wax Museum or the Niagara Wax Museum of History) should be valued not only because they’ve somehow managed to survive, but also for their artistry."

The Curse Returns: GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN Is Back for a Second Season

It's going to happen! "The trio is called to the meeting place of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers in the quaint, historic town of Harpers Ferry, W.V., to explore the John Brown Wax Museum after the manager complained of unusual activity that made her fear being in the museum alone."

Ghosts of Shepherdstown shot the dramatization of our ghost encounter today, and I happened to be there working when they did it. It was all very exciting and professionally done -- at least 10 crew members including the director and producer. The actor portraying Ann looked a lot like her! Can't wait to see it if it airs!

See you March 17th, 2017 for opening day!
