2. RAYNHAM HALL
Location: Oyster Bay, NY
While not as famously known as the Raynham Hall in England, with its well circulated photo of The Brown Lady descending the stairs, the Raynham Hall Museum in Oyster Bay, NY has certainly had its reasonable share of paranormal experiences. There are several stories surrounding this home which was built in 1738. Owners of the home began keeping a hand-written record of the strange phenomena they experienced in 1914 and the vast amount of tales has grown exponentially over the years. The most well known spirit is that of Sally Townsend, who fell in love with a soldier who was staying with her family during the Revolutionary War. When the war was over, instead of marrying Sally, the solider returned to England and took a wife there. Sally died in her early 80s, leaving behind a love letter she had kept from her solider all those years. Her bedroom is always an unexplainable 5-10 degrees lower than any other room in the house, and upon entering the room, it is said you can sense her melancholy.
3. OTESAGA HOTEL
Location: Cooperstown, NY
It has been featured on the TV show Ghost Hunters and is frequented by many paranormal investigators from all across the country. If you are looking to be crept out, you’ll want to stay in rooms 307 or 585, but anywhere on the third or fifth floors tend to be hot spots for paranormal activity. Starting from laughing children to the sound of moving furniture, there have been many such incidents witnessed by the guests. The Otesaga is a great place for video recordings and once a year they do an organized ghost hunt which allows you to search the hotel all night long.
