The massive Ventfort Hall mansion is rumored to have a few ghosts under its roof, and witnesses say sometimes the spooks even touch people. One unsettling occurrence is a woman’s face that hovers as it descends a staircase. A whispering voice, doors that open and close and screams also have been reported. The ghosts are believed to be former owners George and Sarah Morgan. The site has been featured on an episode of TV’s Ghost Hunters.

Years ago I went to Ventfort Hall with a close friend to snoop around in a run down old dump of a mansion. We were welcomed by an angry spirit in the main house, so we think. It made allot of noise but we did not see it. But when we left we saw a lantern outside and ran. It was a floating lantern and it chased us off the property! Do not go there it is really haunted!!!!
A year or so ago, I was at Ventfort for an event that was taking place outside the hall, on the lawn. At one point, I went inside where I was alone, except for a woman in period dress that walked past me, into the kitchen. I followed her and watched her walk through the wall.
2008 August afternoon. Sitting in the great room with two others waiting for the guide to start her talk and tour when the heavy oak door leading to the back porch opens on its own, stops half way and then closes firmly. No wind that day and no one was near the door or used the door before hand.
