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 dress..as he approach the woman …there was no
one there at the site where he had seen her.
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.
