Although this mansion is for sale for much less than it is worth, finding a buyer for it is proving impossible.
The S.K. Pierce Mansion was built in 1875 by a chair manufacturer named Sylvester K. Pierce. He designed and built the Victorian home.
The S.K. Pierce Mansion has 10 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It also has 11 foot ceilings, marble fireplaces throughout, and it still has all of the original windows, doorknobs, hinges, and floors.
The home is currently on the market for only $329,000. In some cities, you’d have a hard time finding a 3-bedroom home for that price.
The reason this home is having a hard time selling is because it’s listed as one of the most haunted homes in all of New England, not just Massachusetts.
Since the home was built, there have been seven different deaths documented. One of these deaths was that of a strangled prostitute.
Because of its haunted reputation, the home has appeared on television shows such as Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventure, My Ghost Story, and 10 Most Haunted Places In New England. Some people have seen a little boy who stares out the front window, while others have seen a busy servant or a sad woman roaming the halls.
The home has been sold and used as various things over the years: a Freemason hall, a private home and even a brothel.
