  1. As soon as I walked in to the building the right side of my body went numb & cold. When we got upstairs my head began to feel as if i were wearing a heavy metal hat … It felt as if a metal ring had been placed on my head … When our visit was over I had to sign the guest book with my left hand as my right side was still numb. As soon as i left the building feeling started to return; i had pins & needles in my right arm until finally it was normal again.

    • Not abandoned, it’s a museum with nice gardens around it. Has a cemetery not far from the manor. I attended a ghost tour there many years ago, was not a public event. I did not see or feel anything that night but it was interesting.

  2. I’ve been there many times as I live in the area. Was sitting on the back patio overlooking the lake one afternoon and one of the ghosts smacked me on the back of my head. I turned quickly and there was nothing to be seen. I’ve sat in the same spot again to see if she’ll do it again but nothing so far.
