Footsteps, voices and apparitions are all heard and seen at the Roycroft Inn. Some people believe that it is haunted by Elbert Hubbard who founded the Roycroft campus and building in an effort to encourage and promote local artistry. Elbert died on the Lusitania when it was sunk by the Germans in 1915. Some believe he is still there keeping an eye on Roycroft.

    1. I grew up in East Aurora and I have been there on many occasions, dinner, overnight and even a funeral. I have never experienced any paranormal activity myself, but if Mr. Hubbard really is at the Roycroft, he definitely isn’t negatively haunting. It’s a beautiful place and if anything, he is watching over it for the good.
