Bruce Mansion was built in 1876, and is now a costume shop, according to reports. The land on which it rests were the site of many tragedies that may have resulted in its hauntings. Fires, deaths and wartime casualties occurred on the property and after it was built, the mansion changed hands many times. Legend has it that one owner hit someone while driving his car, then in a panic, buried the body on the estate. Later, the owner lost his fortune and hanged himself in the bell tower. Was it coincidence, or did the ghost of his victim have a hand in it? Witnesses say the building is haunted by past owners and has been investigated by paranormalists who found EVPs and other strange occurrences.
