Sauer’s Castle, a German gothic mansion, was built in the 1700s by German businessman Anton Philip Sauer for his wife Marie and their 5 daughters. Witnesses say it is haunted, as evidenced by lights that appear floating around the property and in the lookout tower, plus the sounds of laughing, crying and shouting. Apparitions have been seen here too, including a young boy, a woman on the widow’s walk, a man and a woman who dance on the lookout tower at Halloween.

    1. This isn’t a good picture. As you drive past it, it’s very close to the road. I believe it was purchased and someone was going to renovate but didn’t — don’t know why they didn’t.
      Good call on the correct date ‘rex’
