The 1800s living history museum Allaire Village is said to be haunted by Hal Allaire, son of James Peter Allaire. The ghost hangs out in the Big House, playing pranks on the costumed employees by moving objects or playing with candles. Oscar Smith is another spirit said to reside at the village, specifically around the Manager’s House. Reports say this ghost likes to spell out names using the children’s toy blocks.

    i didn’t experience the phenomenon but my friend’s father was a groundskeeper at Allaire and as he

    attended his check walks by one of the smaller buildings …he called out as he had seen what

    looked like a female adult dressed in a long he approach the woman …there was no

    one there at the site where he had seen her.

  2. I experienced the weirdest thing here. It was broad daylight and I was with my boyfriend. We love visiting national parks and unique places with historical backgrounds. I thought it would be fun to go to Allaire because I used to go with my aunt and uncle and cousins when I was younger.

    We arrived and we explored the train area and looked at the ship over there, then we began to walk towards the village and as soon as I stepped foot in the village I passed out. I am in great shape, I wasn’t sick or dehydrated. I ate right before I got there so it was unexplainable. It wasn’t hot out, nothing could explain why I passed out. I had the weirdest feeling come over me and ever since then I will not go back there.

  3. My parents absolutely loved Allaire Village and it was a place we visited quite a bit as kids, they would bring a picnic lunch and we would walk the paths for hours. Allaire was one of the places we could afford, as Dad was a custodian of our grammar school and Mom was mentally ill and could barely handle day to day life, especially with four girls. Dad had grown up on a small farm and he really enjoyed the simple small community that Allaire Park remains as to this day. They had several sightings of paranormal activity, but there was a reoccurring one that they witnessed on several occasions. As my parents got older, they spent more time sitting on the benches and enjoying nature. There was a woman in historic looking clothes walking along the path one day and my parents watched her head off the path and walk through a tree. This happened several times within ten years that they first saw her. My parents are now deceased and I am disabled, but I would love going there and sitting on their bench and seeing if the woman shows up. Maybe she would have two friends tagging along.
