Legend of the Haunted Barn
Legend has it that in the mid-1800's, a six-year old boy by the name
of Philip Sciple lived with his mother and father in a secluded cabin
and labored on a small farm on what is now known as the East End of
Charleston, West Virginia. It is said that Philip had a bad habit of sleep
walking, and on one fateful night his parents, Joshua and Margaret were
startled awake by their son’s blood curdling screams from the barn. Upon
his parents entering the barn, Philip’s screams abruptly ended and the farm
animals within were all found dead with no evidence as to why. After many
days of searching, one of Philip’s socks was found under a pile of hay. To

included construction of several buildings and warehouses. One particular
warehouse was erected on the corner of Beauregard and Lewis Streets.
Countless tales were told by Coca-Cola night shift workers of this particular
warehouse of a child’s cries for help, as well as apparitions of the young
boy, but no one dared work the night shift by oneself for fear of the ghostly

lay empty for numerous years because of the horrific tales.
Until 2012, a group of businessmen and volunteers who shared the same
love and passion for haunted houses made their dream a reality and moved
into this same warehouse where Philip Sciple disappeared so long ago in the
exact place where the barn was located. They honored this site by calling it
the “Haunted Barn”.
During the work on “The Haunted Barn” this group has heard the same
cries, seen objects move and things turn up missing to mention but a few
peculiarities. Some scared workers quit during the renovation phase while
others embraced having Philip around. One owner even went as far as to set
up a motion detector camera and caught these images of what he believes
to be Philip Sciple below. Nevertheless, most everyone believes it to be a
Don’t be surprised if you run into Philip Sciple while you tour the “Haunted
Barn”. He maybe a ghost, but he’s a child just the same...
