THE TRUTH BEHIND THE STORIES
SPENCER MOUNTAIN’S HAUNTED MANSION

As you may or may come to notice, the haunted mansion is now closed to the general public but being closed may be even more detrimental to the fact that the house is really haunted and whoever or whatever is there still resides and will not nor does not intend to go away…
Even before the former town mayor decided to open the doors of the house to the public, there were confirmed stories by both local and visitors from afar about strange sightings and other paranormal activity that had taken place at the old home site…
There have been many documented facts and proven statements that have been confirmed by not just one but many paranormal professionals from across the United States, that show clear evidence that the house is haunted…

The old mansion now sits abroad where the old Spencer Mountain Cemetery used to sit…
In fact, the entire hillside from Pharr Blvd. all the way over to Ranlo/Spencer Mountain Road was once a final resting place for many unforgotten souls…

Some of the old mill houses, now ran down and in need of much repair are
still occupied by very few, mostly retired textile workers and immigrants…
These old homes sit right on top of still visible tombstones…
In the late 1990’s land was donated by the property owners to one of the families of decedents that were confirmed as having family buried on this same hillside…You can now view this grave site that sits on the hillside on Main Street Spencer Mountain which is approximately 300 feet from the mansion…

There are some old sayings about the haunted mansion that many truly believe to be true and accurate…
Some say that if all in the group truly believe, that on any given night Sarah will make her appearance be known …
Sometimes you can see her as only a silhouette…
But at other times many have seen her as she is…
There have been documented statements of people just simply riding by in their auto mobiles that stated that they seen her in the upper bay window of the mansion…
No expressions, no movement, but just a stare…
Then she would disappear…
Some have claimed to have seen her by the old well which is located just below the mansion, and some state they have seen her walking on the street in front of the old place but as they got closer she vanished…
These are all true stories reported by not just one individual but by many…
Sarah has been the most seen sprit, but not the only one…
A professional physic after going on a paranormal tour through the mansion in 2005 stated that she(Sarah) is just one of many spirits that reside on this property…
She also stated that there were children…
This would explain the many sightings of a little girl with blonde hair that has shown up in several pictures taken there…
Through pictures, sound recordings, and other research, this has now been proven…

It has also been said that anyone that walks on the grounds of the mansion certain nights in October will be cursed by the souls that lie buried in the cold dirt below their feet…
There have been rumors of teenagers gathering behind the mansion with Ouija boards and of the marker spelling such words as, help, get out, die, you will soon be dead, then they remember the marker getting so hot that no one could even touch it….

Many state that if one truly believes and walks around the house late at night during the month of October saying these three words, “ See The Dead” over and over again then they can here music, faintly coming from the mansion and feel the presence of evil on their back…
Many have even seen this evil…

These are just a few of the stories….Fact or Fiction?
Well the answer is most definitely fact…

In 2005 a book was published, “Encyclopedia of the Worlds Most Haunted Places”…
Spencer Mountain’s Haunted Mansion was listed in this book as being one of the most haunted places in America…

This place is truly a mark in our history books and like always, there will be those that do not believe, but the truth is those few are only too scared to admit it…

Although the mansion sits in a small town in the middle of no where with a population of 25… There are No Trespassing signs scattered through the property and are just as much there to keep people out as they are attractive to lure people in…
The small town has no Police Department, City Hall, or Post Office…
Just the mansion…
One can truly say that the Haunted Mansion has put the town of Spencer Mountain on the map…

This leaves a conclusion that is only based on facts not fiction, proof by sight, sound, touch, and feeling…

This Mansion is haunted…
This mansion is still home to many that lie beneath the earth…
This is the Spencer Mountain Haunted Mansion!
