St. Mary’s Episcopal Church

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  St. Mary’s Episcopal Church

The grand St. Mary’s Episcopal Church began holding services here in the 1800s, and it is believed to be haunted by the spirit of an early rector, Father Henry David Jardine. Father Jardine was said to be a controversial character in his day, leading to some disagreements with church members and officials, and his death in 1886 was ruled a suicide. Witnesses attribute the unexplained sounds heard around the building to the fact that Father Jardine’s spirit remains here and is looking to clear his name.

  1. I think part of the basement is actually haunted. I used to go there on occasion as a kid, as my dad helped out with the food pantry in the early to mid nineties.
