Much of Burkittsville's history is closely tied to that of George Alfred Townsend, a Civil War correspondent and novelist. In tribute to his fellow newspapermen who covered the Civil War, Townsend designed the War Correspondents Memorial. Dedicated in 1896, the memorial is now in Gathland State Park, 1 mile west of town. “The Blair Witch Project” and its sequel “Book of Shadows” were set and filmed in Burkittsville.
