Halloween brings out the young ghosts and goblins, anxious for sweet treats and an evening of scary fun. Pictured here is the Punderson Manor, the stately 41-room English Tudor-style house in Punderson State Park, Newbury, Ohio. Not waiting for Halloween, it seems that this spooky Manor House has reported ghostly specters anytime of year. Spirits, upset with a 1951 remodel, have made their presence known. Guests began reporting sightings that appeared suddenly and disappeared just as fast, often in a chilling blast of air. Some had visions of characters in costume, while others noticed lights that inexplicably flickered, faucets that turned on and off and, later, TV sets that suddenly turned on in the middle of the night and even neatly stacked linens and towels that mysteriously wound up strewn across the rooms. Some say itís a natural after-effect of the tragedies the owners experienced; rumor has it that Punderson himself may have committed suicide by drowning.
