An easy sell would be to mention the 8 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, spacious rooms, and beautiful original woodwork. Or the fact that each room has a fireplace with carved wood mantels, the marble throughout the mansion came all the way from Germany, and the brick for the 18-inch thick outer walls was from William Peter's own brickyard. Yes, these great "extras" come with the historic home, but not the most unique by far.

Not noted in the listing, and for good reason most likely, is that the mansion comes complete with ghosts...well, at least that's the rumor. Haunted Journeys describes the William Peter Mansion as, "one of the most haunted places in the state". From ghost hunters to paranormal experts, the mansion has been the subject of many investigations.

In 2018 a group of 16 led by paranormal experts spent an evening at the mansion as part of The World’s Largest Ghost Hunt event, and reported experiencing  "things that go bump in the night". Haunted Journeys reports that innkeepers and their brave guests will tell you that the Gentlemen's Quarters at the inn have a strong presence and the "lady of the house" can be seen near the grand staircase.

So how do the current owners feel about the ghostly attention? They embrace it, even offering a chance to come and investigate the haunting.

"Guests have reported to hear whispers in their ears, doors opening and closing, footsteps when no one else is in the building, and even being touched", the website states.

Is the house charming? Yes. Could I live there? Hell no, but that doesn't mean it isn't the perfect home for someone who doesn't mind a few extra tenants.

You can book a stay or your own investigation here, but you may want to check out the pictures below before you decided to make the William Peter Mansion home.
