Silent film actor William S. Hart, who died in 1946, once owned Hart Mansion, and he, his sister and several of his dogs are said to live on here in spirit. Witnesses also have smelled fresh coffee brewing in the home. Rumor has it that Hart will only appear to those people he likes.

  1. My daughter, who is now 9 has two separate sightings at the Hart Mansion. One, at around 3 1/2 when she was with us. We were at the lower bunk house and after she looked in the window, she went into a detailed story about a man known as Black F who was very sad because his mother and sister had died. She even went into detail about what she was wearing. Another time was when she was on a preschool fieldtrip. They were inside the mansion and she and a friend knocked on a door. A man opened it and told her she was not allowed to do knock. She looked behind him and saw 3 men playing cards, dressed like cowboys. She said there was a dog and cat there as well. When she asked what they were doing in there, the man who answered the door just looked funny at my daughter and closed the door. I KNOW that place has spirits.

  2. I took my aunt here who was visiting from Cape Cod. We both hiked and walked around the beautiful grounds and decided to do the tour. As soon as a walked in I felt as thou someone was watching us from the above staircase from a distance. I tried to shrug off the feeling but throughout the house I felt as though someone was following us. As we approached the bedroom area of the house I saw what looked like a chambermaid run down the hallway….she ran right thru me I was was shocked my aunt said ‘what’s wrong with you?’ I said I need to step outside. I sat on the bench outside completely drained of all my energy. I told her what happened and the tour guide was leaving and stopped to ask if I was ok? I asked if this place has a history of spiritual activity. They asked why? I said I think I experienced something. Then they acknowledged it was.

  3. Just had my experience, I climbed the hill and noticed the difference by the atmosphere. I am very spiritual and of all religions. I can sense evil and there is something there but I witnessed Hart. I was washing my hands in the restroom and I accidentally broke the faucet and tried to screw it on (came undone) and the water wouldn’t turn off. The faucet lid then began to screw itself back on and the water turned off. I was happy and I said, THANK YOU outloud twice.
