Black Rock House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Black Rock House

This historic holiday house was built in 1856, and is reportedly haunted by twelve spirits. Passing motorists have made many of the reported sightings associated with the building, including a spectral figure toppling from the roof to their death. Prior to the twentieth century, a viewing tower had been built on the roof, leading to the belief that someone had been pushed or fell to their death while it was still in use. On several occasions, passer-by’s have called authorities after seeing a fistfight under a large fig tree in front of the property, but when police arrive, the figures have mysteriously vanished. More recently, it is believed that a drive who passed away in a nearby automobile accident has been seen wandering through the historic house.
