My next book takes place in Long Island. It's about an old mansion with a troubled past and secrets that will be revealed. If you love history and ghosts, look for Stillwell. It's coming soon! Until then, please enjoy the local Long Island haunts I'll share over the next few weeks!
Raynham Hall is located on Long Island. Dating back to the 1700s, this historic house in Oyster Bay, NY, was originally built by a well-to-do merchant. It is now a museum open to the public. There are many stories about it. One visitor reports, "While visiting Raynham Hall years ago, I spoke with the woman selling tickets and asked about the house's legends of hauntings. She told me a story from years back, when a man was hired to take care of the grounds and sleep in the house. After his first night there, he was asked how he slept. He answered that it was quiet, but that the "people upstairs" made quite a racket. Note to fans of ghost stories: no one lived upstairs."
There have been other stories about visitations by a young woman in a bridal gown. This apparition is supposedly the ghost of a former resident who was abandoned by her lover while waiting for him at the altar. Want to know more? Read about this haunting at the Long Island Paranormal Investigator's website!
Until Next Time,
