Lancaster Opera House

You are here Home  > Theaters >  Lancaster Opera House

A ghostly Lady in Lavender resides at the Lancaster Opera House, locals say. She appears in the balcony, looking down on the stage as if watching a performance. Another ghost named William, thought to be the spirit of a man who hanged himself here, is believed to play pranks, like throwing a TV across the stage during a performance. Both ghosts wear 1920s-era clothing.

  1. I grew up and went to Lancaster schools. During the field trip there workers told of a ghost that haunted the clock tower. After telling my mom she explained that my great grandfather Oscar died there while winding the clock tower.
