Glenn House

Glenn House, built in 1883, is haunted by a Christmas ghost. The mansion was built by Edwin Dean for his daughter Lulu and her husband David Glenn. But banker Glenn lost much of his fortune and they moved out in 1915. The property fell into disrepair until it was renovated in the 1970s. When the house is decorated in turn-of-the-century Christmas style, the ghost is known to open or stack Christmas packages, move decorations, and make cold spots on the stairs. Distinct footsteps have been heard walking through the house when no one was there. An investigation into the home’s history determined that the ghost may be the spirit of a young girl who fell to her death on the staircase.
