This historic castle was established in 1895. It now stands as a bed and breakfast. Many who have frequented the property have reported paranormal activity like tapping on the shoulders and sightings of apparition dressed in clothing not of this time.

It is believed the spirits of Frank and Mary Henderson, the castle's original owners exists as well as the spirit of Clare Burleigh, a Spanish-American War veteran who served with the Henderson's son, that of a little girl, and even a dog.

  • Growling Sound From Beneath Blankets

    My wife and I stayed in the Mayfair Suite... at about 3:30 AM we heard a growling sound from beneath the blankets on my wife’s side of the bed. It was a very low bellowing sound that you could feel reverberating through the bed. Seconds later there was on odd, almost foul smell throughout the room. It was like the scent of stale must, sweat, and everyone’s dinner seeping out into the hallways of a multicultural urban apartment building. There was also a couple cold spots. One in front of the door, and another that was in front of our window. Odd experience to say the least.

  • Vineyard suite

    My boyfriend and I spent the night in the Vineyard suite. We had no idea the castle was haunted. Throughout the night we heard the toilet run off and on and didn’t think anything of it. Around 3 am, my boyfriend saw an apparition of a man’s face. At 5 am, I got up to use the bathroom and I heard a man whisper “hey.” When we woke up around 8 am, our room was freezing cold, much colder than it was the evening prior.

  • Henderson Castle. Activity in Cottage, ballroom, and honeymoon suite

    Oldest daughter’s wedding was at Henderson Castle this weekend. My wife and I stayed in Cottage A and did not expect to experience anything as we were on the grounds, but not in the main building. The first night as we slept, my wife felt some weigh on her arm as if something was laying on it. The second night I was laying in bed while my wife was sleeping, and I literally felt like something jumped up on the bed next to my shoulder and stepped across my pillow. The way it landed on the bed, I could definitely feel three feet land just pile out dogs and cats do at home. One of my other daughters heard laughter in the honeymoon suite as well as clear footsteps in heels across the ballroom floor
