Nathan Hale Homestead

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Nathan Hale Homestead

This homestead, where Nathan Hale’s father Deacon lived until his death in 1802, is said to be haunted by Deacon himself, whose apparition has been seen wearing Colonial attire. Also, a ghostly lady in white thought to be a servant has been seen sweeping the floors and cleaning, and Nathan’s brother Joseph Hale, who was captured and imprisoned in the hold of a British prison ship, is said to rattle chains in the basement. Nathan Hale’s ghost has not been seen at the site, as he never lived here and was executed in New York.

  1. when we did an investigation there at night we werent inside but we heard musket shots near the woody area near the back around the open field and kept communicating to what we believe was the women there she talked to us by answering yes and no questions through a bird in the tree above us by the restrooms. but the bird sounded like nothing we heard of before

  2. According to the staff there, the house was bought by some rich banker? or real estate agent I’m not sure. Anyways, he bought the house for the sole purpose to woo prospective clients and just brag to his friends that he owned the house of a war hero. The homeowner hired a caretaker to watch the house, so he had the schoolhouse on the property that used to belong to Nathan Hale’s brother converted to an apartment. Mind you, this was a farm and the property was around 10ish acres (it’s about 5 now). Anyways, he only came into human contact with the person that brought groceries, the homeowner, and the newsboy. This is 3 times a week of human interaction. He ended up hanging himself in the schoolhouse from being depressed of having that job for several years. And now apparently he haunts the schoolhouse and the property. There’s supposedly lots of activity in the children’s room, the Reverands office, and the attic where there’s a silhouette at the window, and other windows, too.
