Widder: Wenn sie etwas im Kopf haben bekommen sie keine Ruhe bis sie dieses Problem gelöst haben, dabei können sie schon mal etwas gereizter wirken. Aber gerade dann brauchen sie jemanden der sie nicht hängen lässt.
The Houghton Mansion was once the home of former mayor of North Adams, Albert Charles Houghton. It is now used as a Masonic Temple, and is classed as a highly active paranormal location.
In 1914, the Houghtons were involved in a devastating car-crash that cost two of them their lives. Mr. Houghton arranged a trip to Vermont in their brand-new car, with their chauffeur, John Widders at the wheel. As they entered the state, Widders decided to drive around a horse and carriage that was blocking the narrow road. The car fell off an embankment, killing the daughter Mary, two other passengers, and Mr. Houghton ten days later. John Widders survived, but was plagued with guilt and committed suicide in The Houghton Mansion a fortnight later.
Now an empty shell, the mansion
is reportedly haunted by the spirits of Albert Houghton, his daughter, Mary Houghton, and their chauffeur, John Widders. People have reported disembodied voices and footsteps, shadow figures, and a feeling of sadness in Mary Houghton’s room. A notable haunt is the apparition of a little girl in the basement, who has no relation to the family, that is thought to be some sort of demonic entity.
