Shippen Manor, a historic Georgian mansion built in the 1760s for Dr. William Shippen II and his brother Joseph Shippen II, is the site of some strange happenings. Witnesses report that items appear on shelves that weren’t there before, doors open and close on their own, and ghosts have been afoot. Some have seen a spectral soldier; others a small boy in period costume. A lady in blue with her hair in a bun has been spotted as well.
