Mayflower Hall: Linen room



Mayflower Hall: Linen Room 1st Floor 

After hearing paranormal activity in the linen room, I took a photo of the room. This area is just an oversize closet, once used for storage. (each floor has its own linen closet.)

The image came out distorted, not uncommon in Mayflower. 

What do you see? Perhaps nothing? 

But...


I see a shape, perhaps arms, and legs - almost upside down. Others claim there is someone sitting on the floor. 

But whatever it is, Mayflower always keeps me guessing. 


Below is what the room actually looks like in the limited lighting



The Mayflower Hall building was once part of the infamous Pennhurst State School & Hospital in Spring City Pa 
(1908-1987)

Today it is a hotspot for the paranormal enthusiast.

GHOST ON THE MOVE: MAYFLOWER 2011

                      FLASHBACK 2011 




Over the past 7 years, ghostly images have been photographed in the Mayflower Hall Building, Pennhurst.  Many are orbs or shadows. But one of the spirits more pronounced is that of the nurse. This woman wears a white uniform and usually resides on the 2nd floor. Most of her images are incomplete, such as the one above.  Often only half a body with one sleeve appears in the image. In this picture, she appears to be in flight.

So who is this ghostly wonder? 

A nurse checking up on her patients? 
Perhaps.

After- all, a white uniform was standard in Pennhurst's era. 

Mayflower Hall is just one of the many buildings located at the old Pennhurst State School and Hosptial in Spring City
 (1908-1987)Pennsylvania.

GHOSTLY HAPPENINGS 2017

MAYFLOWER HALL: PENNHURST 2017 




Added to the Pennhurst State School and Hospital compound in 1919, the Mayflower Hall building became part of what was considered the lower campus.It housed males. This towering building holds three floors and a complex basement filled with various rooms. 

Anyone familiar with theMayflower Hall can attest to its spooky atmosphere. When the sun sets, the building seems to prematurely darken on its own accord. Shadows play against the walls. The atmosphere cools. One might catch movement in a corner or something drifting across the hallway. But quick as a wink, one will pause, wondering as to what occurred? An unbeliever might shake it off as just a fluke. But a believer will feel the seal of knowledge of the unknown. 

Mayflower: Main hallway, 1st Floor

In the 2017 haunt season, Mayflower was up to her tricks. Guests of the Mayflower After Dark tour reported being touched, mostly on the head or hand. Some event staff of Mayflower reported seeing apparitions or having their hair stroked. Photos taken of orbs, faces, and shadows were common. 

Another guide witnessed a walker abruptly flipping onto its side. Still, another spoke of having his shoelaces untied over and over again, despite securing them.  
Did this walker flip over on its own? 


The rear lot of Mayflower is also a hot spot for ghost sightings. Reports of a drifting spirit who exits the Mayflower and then disappears into the Quaker Building have been alleged. Another sighting included a spirit following a stray kitten.

  1. Pennhurst State School (Spring City, Pa 1908-1987) continues to be a hot spot for ghost enthusiasts and even skeptics. And the mystery continues...
