The Thomas Shepherd Inn providing gracious hospitality since 1984, was first built in 1868 as the parsonage for St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. This Federal-style building consisted of a parlor, dining room, kitchen and “three chambers”. The building served as parsonage until 1936, when it was sold for $6000 to Dr. Halvard Wanger and his wife, Dr. Sarah Elizabeth McFetridge. Drs. Wanger and McFetridge added the Duke Street section of the building to provide offices and exam rooms for their patients.
A plaque with their names remains on the Duke Street exterior wall. In the interior of the inn, a plaque with Dr. McFetridge’s name and specialty, anesthesiology, remains.
The property was purchased in 1983 from Dr. McFetridge’s estate by Ed and Carol Ringoot, who converted it to a gracious bed and breakfast inn, named after the town’s founder. The inn has operated continuously since 1984.
The current innkeepers, David and Lauren Duh, look forward to serving you and continuing to offer the gracious hospitality the Thomas Shepherd Inn has become known for. As with many innkeepers, Dave and Lauren have come from non-innkeeping backgrounds. Dave teaches high school chemistry and physics, but during his college years at Allegheny College he did work in the college kitchen/cafeteria. Lauren worked as a nurse for many years but fondly remembers her very first job serving breakfast in the Great Harbor Inn on Martha’s Vineyard. While they saw many beautiful inns in their search for a bed and breakfast to own and run, the Thomas Shepherd Inn and the town of Shepherdstown felt like home.

Be prepared to join Spirited Events by Jofa for a weekend paranormal exploration of Shepherdstown, WV. Our home base will be the lovely Thomas Shepherd Inn, located downtown just steps away from all of the local history. Chartered in 1762 and rich with history, Shepherdstown has also recently been highlighted in Destination America's "Ghosts of Shepherdstown". Here’s your opportunity to spend the weekend in this historic town!
Our weekend will feature a history and hauntings walking tour with Dana Mitchell. Dana is the historian who provides the back stories and history for the "Ghosts of Shepherdstown" show. You will hear about the forgotten history, unrequited love and murder, frontier days, Civil War lore, life along the Potomac River, mysterious legends, and of course, ghostly tales. Dana will be putting together a private tour for our group, so bring your flashlight, recorder, camera or any other paranormal equipment you may have. Don't forget your walking shoes.
On Saturday afternoon, enjoy a pizza lunch at the Thomas Shepherd Inn while Dana tells more ghostly stories from Shepherdstown. She will be followed by medium, Jennifer Fortune, who will give everyone messages from the other side. For an additional cost, we’ve added optional activities including a horse drawn carriage tour of Antietam and 30-minute private readings from Melody Bruch. That same weekend, the annual "BooFest" will be going on in. Take advantage of all of the special activities that will be offered throughout town.
