1875 Mansion Is Being Sold For Dirt Cheap, But No One Wants To Buy It Because It’s Haunted

In today’s world of boxy McMansions and cookie-cutter pre-fab homes, it can be hard to find a house with character.

That’s why I instantly fell in love when I saw this exquisite Victorian home. With its large bay windows, Mansard roof, and gingerbread trim, it has all the makings of a living dollhouse.

But when I saw how much it’s listed for, I was stunned. Why on earth would a 10-bedroom, 6,661-sq-ft home built in 1875 be so cheap?

So I started doing a little investigating — and what I found shocked me. This was clearly no ordinary historic home.

Just like this strange home from the same era, the S.K. Pierce mansion house contains a chilling secret, and it seems to have lowered its market value.

What do you think about this hair-raising house? Would you live here despite its haunting past?
