The Mount - Real Haunts in Lenox MA
The Mount was built in 1902 and has been the home of renowned writer Edith Wharton. It is also said to be quite haunted, ghost tours are even offered here. In 1911, the Whartons sold the home and it was used for the Foxhollow School for Girls, and later a theater. Once it was converted into a theater is when people started reporting strange things such as odd noises, eerie sensations, and apparitions of people wearing old-fashioned clothing. The location has been featured on TV's Ghost Hunters and apparently the team picked up footsteps, ghostly voices and the apparition of a head peeking around a corner.
