    I was interested in reading this book because I live across the river from DC in Northern Virginia and visit the Capitol area often. This was a fairly interesting book, nothing really creepy or chilling. Then about halfway through, I saw the author wrote "Sir Alfred Conan Doyle" instead of "Arthur". I was stunned. How could someone make such a simple mistake? Where was the editor? The book lost all credibility with me.

    Better than most books compiling local ghost stories. The author doesn’t try to convince you ghosts are real or get all dramatic about the legends. It’s just the stories he has heard and it includes interesting tidbits of history and long lost buildings. There were times when he referenced things that I needed more information on or reminders from earlier in the book. But, overall, a decent read for Halloween—you can make your own ghost tour walk.

    A hair-raising guide to Washington’s ghosts, from the Demon Cat to the weeping lady of the Maples. “It is one of the oldest buildings in the city and has been the epicenter for drama high and low for more than two hundred years. It is the symbolic center of the District of Columbia, so much that our lettered and numbered roads start from here.

    CAPITOL HILL HAUNTS - Tim Krepp For those of you that love ghost stories or who want to investigate our Nation's Capitol, Washington, D.C. this is the book for you.

    A delightful book about the ghosts of Washington D.C. that also introduces you to the more common worker found in the city. Oh it has some famous people in it too, but my favorite stories are definitely about the people behind the scenes that rarely make it into the average history text.

    I'd actually give this 3.5 stars. It was very interesting as a history book. I had hope for more narrative, however. I would have liked more 1st person encounters of ghosts. A few of the stories, while interesting, just ended with the idea that maybe the building is haunted.
