The Governor's Mansion -  "Woodburn"

By far, the most famous haunted place in Delaware is the Governor's mansion, called Woodburn.  The house was built in 1790 and served at one point as a stop on the underground railway for escaping slaves via a tunnel dug from the basement to the St. Jones River.  Ghostly sightings have occurred here for hundreds of years, and include an elderly man who may be the original owner of the house, a man with an old-time powdered wig who seems to like vintage wines, a small female child, and a slave who was accidentally hung when he got caught in the branches of an old poplar tree in the yard.   Guests at the house have reported hearing rattling chains in the basement, fleeting silhouettes, strange lights, and the sensation that something is tugging at their clothing. 

Woodburn is a historical landmark with a rich history, and it would be surprising indeed if there were no reports of paranormal activity there.  Tours are available by appointment by calling 302-739-5656.

The Address for Woodburn is 151 King's Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
