FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - The National Museum of Civil War Medicine is marking Halloween with a ghastly tour of its building in downtown Frederick.

The museum says in a statement that the event Monday night will include stories of Civil War embalmers, and firsthand accounts of paranormal activity in what is reputedly the city’s most haunted building.

The structure originally housed a furniture-making and carpentry business, but the enterprise turned to undertaking during the War Between the States.

The Union Army placed an embalming station there after the 1862 Battle of Antietam, which filled the city with wounded and dying soldiers.

The museum has operated there since 1996.
