The July 8th Ghost Tour had everyone on high alert. There was definitely some kind of presence in the house making itself known. Doors opening and closing and footsteps in the servant wing were heard several times. Could this have been Catherine Gross the Head Housekeeper, still on duty after all these years? Our Tour Guide, Robert, was patted on the head. Perhaps Teddy Wharton? When the tour was in the drawing room several of our ghost chasers heard noises coming from the library. The many photos taken revealed mysterious orbs around us and unexplained misty images. This is my second year of “ghost hunting” at The Mount and I do believe that the spirits of the people who once lived here remain among us.
Right: It’s been a spooky season so far! Maline Thai caught this strange figure in the Stable window on the July 1st Ghost Tour.
