The Mansion is said to be haunted by spirits. Built during the late 1790s for General Abraham Ten Broeck and his wife, Elizabeth Van Rensselaer, after a fire destroyed their first home. Over the years, stories of ghostly apparitions have been whispered about of unhappy spirits who are said to haunt the mansion’s halls and grounds.
