Mystery Manor

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Mystery Manor

Built in 1887, Mystery Manor was home to William and Greta Hall. Reports say that when the stock market crashed on October 23, 1929, William Hall lost his fortune and went insane. He attacked Greta with an axe then buried her in the front yard. A week later, Greta’s brother John Martin avenged Greta by chopping up William with the same ax, then burying him next to Greta. But the next night, which was Halloween, John Martin’s body was found at Halls’ gravesite with the same axe in his skull. Some think it was William’s ghost who killed John, as the mystery was never solved. His ghost is believed to roam the manor’s halls every October.

    i lived at this place in the 60;s it was a apartment building then. i was 6 years old my bed was in the front of the 2nd floor south window. there was a street light outside my window so i could see the room well. i shared my bed with my younger brother and i could see my mother from my bed. the door to the apartment was across the room and was well lit. one night i woke up to a noise at the door , i stared at the door for awhile and a black shadow came through the door. it looked like it had wings but no features. it was moving towards me and i screamed , which my dad and mom woke up and turned the light on. it disappeared. i never saw it again
