Wolf House Museum

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Wolf House Museum

Apparitions of men with canes in top hats have been reported here, as well as phantom conversations and dishes being violently thrown against the wall. Legend has it that the museum building was once a brothel, and one of its workers was murdered there… and fast-forward to several years later: The home belonged to the town doctor who committed suicide in the building. The site has been used for a Boy Scouts of America haunted house event.

  1. When I was in the fifth grade, my class took a field trip to the Wolf House Museum. We split up into different groups, my group first went into the dining room area. The doors kept opening and closing when no one was there to mess with it. There’s a table with cabinets, those doors kept opening as well. We headed up stairs into the bedrooms. Our tour guide was talking and the person that was helping her had a started acting weird. She finally just passed out. It was just crazy.

  2. i went on a field trip here in the 4th grade. at the time, they told us it was one of the first houses built in mhk and refrained from telling us it was a murder house. but while i was there, i saw a woman upstairs in a black dress walk to another room and i went in there to look in the room and there was nobody in there. creepy af.

  3. My dad and his coworker were working right outside the wolf house museum and seen a woman looking out the window straight at them and later found out that it was closed and no one was in there.

    • I work for the City of Manhattan and the brick street of Juliette Ave is being restored right by the Wolf House. Some of the construction workers apparently saw a woman on the second floor looking out at them while they were eating lunch. Apparently they were pretty freaked out and had no doubt it was an apparition but I don’t have enough information on exactly what they saw, how the woman was dressed or wore her hair, etc. Perhaps your dad was one of the workers?
