Editorial Reviews

Review

Krepp is well-versed in local history as well as the politics, trade and commerce, and social milieu of the eras he's discussing, and is a great storyteller who, with a confident grasp of the facts and judiciously inserted asides, can bring to life both the haunters and the haunted. His way of ending his chapters with - gasp! - the literary equivalent of a horror movie organ chord lends a delightfully chilling touch. -Hill Rag

About the Author

Tim Krepp lives on Capitol Hill with his wife, two daughters and a dog that clings tenaciously to life. He avoids honest labor by leading tours in Washington, D.C., New York and elsewhere for school trips, professional associations, private groups and pretty much any group that will listen to him. While the topics are eclectic and diverse, he particularly enjoys delving into tales of ghostly lore and is author of Capitol Hill Haunts. Tim fell in love with Washington during his time at George Washington University. He graduated with a degree in history and went on to not use that degree whatsoever, serving as a naval officer for many years. Today, he finds himself pleasantly surprised to find it handy in his current life.

I liked this slim volume and am glad I read it, but franky I was a bit disappointed as well. For those who love Georgetown, it is a must-read, but for others not as devoted it may be a harder sell. It is tough to base a whole book on this subject, simply because there just isn't a lot to go on without putting in much more time and effort to do original research. Many of the stories are repeats of well known lore and stories found in other books on the town or the subject. I was hoping the author might have found more new goodies, or dug a bit deeper and fleshed out some stories (particularly on Halcyon House). As it was, the short-ish stories were amusing more than scary, and there was the occasional fact-check error that really should have been caught (e.g., old First Street is most definitely not today's R Street!)

Perhaps a fictional novel based around one or a few of the incidents in the book might have been more satisfying and let Mr. Krepp have more fun with his material.

Tim Krepp has done it again. I bought Ghosts of Georgetown because I really liked Tim's first book, Ghosts of Capitol Hill. Both books offer a view into the history of DC that transcends what you will find in other history books. Its fun to look at buildings and sights around town knowing that they have a supposed supernatural connection. I recommend this book for people who live here who are curious about their surroundings. I also recommend it to visitors to our fair city, especially those with kids, looking to make history fun. Kids are drawn to ghost stories... let their fascination provide you with an opportunity to throw in a history lesson on the side.

Mr. Krepp continues his exploration of Washington DC neighborhood ghosts and ghouls started in his first book, "Capitol Hill Haunts." Most readers will connect with the historical periods since the history of Georgetown reflects that of Washington DC. This engaging read includes surprisingly recent testimonials. "Ghosts of Georgetown" has something for historians, architects, film buffs, cemetery fans, spiritualists, Georgetown residents, Georgetown University students and alumni, and apparition aficionados everywhere. I look forward to the next book in the series.
