Kennebunkport, Maine is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Captain Lord Mansion. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The Captain Lord Mansion was built in 1812 by wealthy shipbuilder, Captain Nathaniel Lord. The captain did not enjoy his home for long; he died in 1815 at the age of thirty-nine. His wife Phoebe would raise their nine children there alone. It remained in the Lord family until 1972. Later it became a boarding house for elderly ladies. In 1978, it was remodeled and became the beautiful and celebrated Captain Lord Mansion Bed and Breakfast that we know today. This property has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
This beautiful inn has a spectral history as well. In the Lincoln Suite, a female apparition has made her presence. She is dressed in 1800’s period clothing and has been seen walking randomly in this beautiful room. A young couple on their honeymoon got an unexpected thrill of seeing this night gown-clad woman float through their bedroom, and then disappear into the wall. She is also seen in the hallway and on the spiral staircase that leads up to the cupola.
Many believe that she is the phantom of the wife of Captain Lord, who spent much of her early widowhood raising her nine children. The suite was originally (and mysteriously called) the Wisteria Room, which means “remembrance of the dead.” This is probably an indicator that her spectral image has been haunting this room for a while. Others believe that perhaps this room was her room when she was living.
