Ringwood Manor was first built in 1740, but it took years and a change of ownership before it turned into the sprawling 51-room mansion that stands today. Today the manor is a museum open for tours, but at one point it belonged to General Erskine, who ran an iron works and was also the Surveyor-General for George Washington during the Revolution.

Erskine died long ago, but locals say they still see his spirit walking about the mansion, carrying a lantern at night. He has also been seen gazing across the pond or sitting on his grave on the manor’s grounds. French soldiers are also said to be buried in unmarked graves; after dark they will come to the pond and walk along the shore, sometime whispering in French.

A housemaid was allegedly beaten to death in a room on the second floor. Visitors have heard strange noises coming from the empty room, including soft crying, footsteps, and the thud of a heavy object falling. For some reason the door is regularly pushed ajar and the bed sheets become rumpled.
