The History

In 1823 the Cedarhurst Mansion Estate was built by Stephen Ewing. Unfortunately soon after he met his untimely death, not able to enjoy the fruits of his hard labor. Another relative of Ewing, Sally Carter, also died in this property of an illness at the young age of 16 while she was staying at the mansion.  

The Hauntings

The young spirit of Sally Carter remains at the Cedarhurst Mansion Estate to this day. The first and most famous recorded story pertaining to Sally occurred not long after her passing. In 1919 a teenage boy stayed with his family at the mansion. On a stormy night, Sally's ghost visited him. She asked him to fix her tombstone which had been knocked over in the storm. When he reported the incident to his family, they laughed it off. Until discovering that the tombstone, for sure, had fallen over. Her spirit is said to enjoy watching over children while they sleep. Others have seen her walk through the mansion with great curiosity. 

Visitors do experience other unworldly experiences such as disembodied footsteps, furniture moving on its own, and some items being broken and/or missing with no explanation.
