Haunted Houses - Hampton House


Hampton House


Why did we rate this "Confirmed"? Because multiple sources off the internet sites have experienced paranormal activity at this location & therefore warrants a rating of "Confirmed".

What's the tale? The Hampton House is truly one of the greatest mansions in the United States. It was originally built on 2,000 acres but now resides on the surviving 60 acres. It is open to the public and is currently owned by the Federal government as its beauty and architectural stature is unmatched. The home is haunted by Priscilla Ridgely, who was the wife of Charles Carnan Ridgely (the original owner and governor of Maryland). The home was completed in 1790 and Priscilla walked it gilded halls. She suffered from an agonizing mental depression and took little care of their 11 children. She spent the majority of her life alone, holed up in her bedroom. She never took visitors and didn't entertain guests and she died a very unhappy woman. She has been seen in most of the rooms in the house. It seems in death she has found the will to walk around the mansion's halls once again. Many employees, guests and previous Ridgely family members have witnessed Priscilla manifesting physically before their eyes.

What do we know as fact? Thanks to this site we know the exact chronology of the home and there is no mention of Priscilla, there is also no mention of 11 children. The site does cite more than 300 people served at Hampton House including indentured servants, free workers, British Prisoners of War, and African slaves.

Thoughts: This location is confirmed haunted due to the sheer number of repots of paranormal activity on the site and the fact that with so many people who occupied, visited, worked & lived in the home it is bound to have activity.
