Thornhill Mansion Stories
Today, I visited the Thornhill Mansion, home of Governor Bates. I was alone and the park was virtually empty. I had just arrived out in front of the house I stopped right in front of the porch, turned away to get my camera, and out of nowhere, I heard 4 or 5 distinct taps. It sounded like tapping on a window. I am a person who is not easily freaked out by things of this sort, but I definitely gave any approach to the home a second thought. I had to know what this noise was to give me a piece of mind. I observed AH things around the home that may be able to make any noise. I tapped the shudders on one of the windows, and that was not what I heard, so then I tapped my fingers on the glass of one of the windows, and sure enough, that was similar to the sound I heard. Again, no one was in that house, no one was around it. I had been to the home before as a child, at that time I was on a tour where I could actually go inside the house, but I got no funny feelings then. I have a knack for feeling strange presences, and this had my heart racing. I had no idea that this location had strange happenings until I came home after this experience and checked this website.
