Morris Jumel Mansion

From Dark City

Built in 1765 as a summer home for British Col. Roger Morris and his wife, the Morris-Jumel Mansion is the oldest remaining house in Manhattan. Several ghosts are reputed to haunt the mansion: Eliza Jumel, the former mistress of the mansion, has been reportedly seen wandering the house in a purple dress, rapping on walls and windows, the ghost of a young servant girl who committed suicide by jumping out a window has been reported in the mansion's servants' quarters, and sightings of a soldier from the American Revolution, whose picture hangs on a wall in the mansion, have also been reported.
