The circa 1750 Ambler House burned down three times: Once during the American Revolution (it was restored by Colonel John Ambler), again during the Civil War, and a third time in 1895. Its ruins are tended to by the National Park Service. The ghost here, Lydia, is said to walk the ruins awaiting the return of her love, Alexander.
