Investigation at the Anchorage Mansion
Welcome to the 'Palace Beautiful' for a night of paranormal investigation. This large mansion was built in 1859 by Douglas Putnam, the richest man in Marietta at that time. He built it for his wife, Eliza, but unfortunately she died 3 years later. Many owners have come and gone, yet their spirits linger here today. Once a nursing home, this building harbors the souls of those not ready to move on. Encounters with an elegantly dressed woman in the tower and on the main staircase have been reported, as well as sightings of a little girl all over the house. Unexplained voices and screams have been heard audibly as well as caught on recorders, and a man in a top hat roams the hallways. We invite you inside to explore these hauntings yourself. Bring your ghost hunting equipment or borrow ours, and see what awaits you inside one of Historic Harmar's most haunted mansions.
