The Allen House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  The Allen House

This Gothic mansion in Monticello was built in 1900 at the turn of the century, and has many recorded instances of hauntings reported. The main ghost, however, is that of a young woman who haunts the upper and lower floors of the mansion. The ghost roams around the house, often standing behind people before vanishing and reappearing elsewhere in the house. Footsteps and voices come out of the fourth floor, which has been closed off. Photos have shown an apparition peering out of a window on the third floor, but his presence can not be attributed to that of the young woman.
