The mansion was once a summer house for the family of Robert Lamont. It is said that a ghost appeared to Lamont, and, thinking it was an intruder, he fired a bullet at it, evidence of which stayed for years in a wooden basement door. After he passed away and a new family moved in, they experienced noises, shadows, and other activity. It is said that they found a human corpse wedged behind a closet and simply left it there, but skeptics doubt this tale. After many bad times for the owners, the house was abandoned in the early 1980s, until investors decided to renovate it in 1986. But it was struck by lightning in 1988 and burned down, and now remains in ruins.
