This stately Victorian was built circa 1888. It had been the home of six families since it was first built by the original owner Mr. Otis B. Crossman. He was a jeweler who married Mary N. Baldwin on April 10, 1882. Together, they had a daughter Ada.
Upon arrival, the M.A.P.S. Team was cordially welcomed into this charming home. It was as though we had just entered a cozy, candlelit bed and breakfast with glowing fireplaces in every room, rather than it being the site of our paranormal investigation. The couple were aware of the activity in their home, and were curious as to who else inhabited their space. We eagerly listened as they revealed to us the following: the feeling of being watched, the sighting of a figure standing on the main staircase, footsteps on the stairs, hearing the sound of shuffling feet, and a whistling sound in the basement, witnessing a black shadow passing from the livingroom to the diningroom on a regular basis, as well as a black shadow appearing near the fireplace and stairway. They also told of seeing lights on trees in the yard, problems they had opening the new lock on the barn, being touched on the head while sitting in a chair near the dogs' bed, and the feeling of being followed while walking the dog.
