Sedamsville Rectory

Over a century old, the rectory is believed to be haunted. Witnesses working on building renovations have seen eerie mists and shadows under the doors of empty rooms. Some say one ghost who resides here is Father Donald MacLeod, who wrote “The History of Roman Catholicism in North America.” In the late 1800s he was hit by a train nearby, and locals, including parishioners, have seen his ghost walking along the street near the building or by the railroad tracks. Visitors here have heard unexplained footsteps and voices and seen doors opening and closing. They’ve also seen the apparition of a clergyman. Other spirits believed to haunt the place are a man and a child who were both found dead, at different times, on the street in front of the rectory. The child had a noose around its neck.
