The Parsonage - Real Staten Island Haunt
Built in 1855, The Parsonage was originally a home for the pastor of a nearby Dutch Reformed Church. Though the church would eventually be demolished, the Carpenter Gothic-style home remains intact and is now a registered landmark. For a period of over ten years the building was occupied by a restaurant, but had fallen into disuse since the eatery’s 2008 closing. Guests say that the home is haunted by a lady seen wearing a bonnet and 19th century clothing. Her apparition has been spotted in a window on the second floor between the hours of 10 PM and 2 AM. The ghosts of soldiers have also been seen in the dining room during the day and earlier parts of the night; after manifesting they walked through the building and toward the cemetery across the street.
