Lancaster Opera House - Lancaster NY Haunted Place
The Lancaster Opera House was built in 1894 as a conjoined music hall and town hall and, after a few renovations, continues to act as a performing arts and civic center for the community to this day. Patrons and actors have long held that the building is haunted, claiming that there are two distinct ghosts in the theater. One, a man named William, is thought to be the spirit of a person who hanged himself in the building; he now plays pranks on people and once threw a TV across the stage during a performance. The other is the spirit of a woman who manifests on the balcony and looks down to watch the shows. Both appear to be dressed in 1920s clothing.
