  1. I had no idea this place was “haunted” – I wandered all over the grounds a few weeks ago. It had been opened that day apparently, but was closed when I got there so I was all alone. There is a child’s playhouse in the garden built in 1850 and I’ve got some good videos of the entire place. I have to admit I thought the playhouse was pretty creepy and I normally would have found something like that enchanting and fun. The main house seems to be in run-down condition and desperately in need of money for repairs it looks like. These people were strongly attached to the land, carving dates in rocks when they planted trees etc. I can believe they’re haunting it!
