“It was like some dark undefinable menace, forever dogging my steps, lurking, & threatening …”  – Edith Wharton, The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton

It starts with the sounds—creaking floors and slamming doors, fading footsteps down empty halls—a feeling of being watched, tingling taps on the shoulders, spectral shapes crouched in corners or gathered in front of fireplaces long gone cold.

Tricks of the imagination in an old house once inhabited by a skilled writer of ghost stories … or something else? Take a ghost tour and decide for yourself.

While we are hoping to offer live ghost tours later in the season, we are happy to announce our offering of online ghost tours, which will be streamed live via Zoom. Beginning September 4th, we will be hosting weekly ghost tours through the end of October. Tours through The Mount’s Stable begin at 8 p.m. and take about one hour. Please click HERE to view available dates and book tickets. Advanced reservation is required and tickets are limited.

We are interested in hearing from anyone who has stories about The Mount. Email them to info@edithwharton.org.
