Country House Restaurant - Real Haunt in Stony Brook NY
Legend has it that during the war, Annette Williamson was left in the house to look after it by her parents while they went to check on another farm they owned in New Jersey. During their absence, British troops came to occupy the home; not knowing what else to do, Annette let them in without a struggle. The troops eventually left, but Annette was branded a spy by the local townsfolk; those same townsfolk cornered her in the home and hung her from the second story rafters. Her body is allegedly buried in a small grave on the property.
Annette is said to now haunt the kitchen and stairway of the Country House, crying out and draining light bulbs to catch the attention of guests. Onetime owner, Thomas Haddaway, was also said to hold séances in the building, drawing in an unknown number of other spirits.

Worked there 1966-1970
Lived upstairs for about 6 months. Toilet up stairs there would flush by itself sometimes. We(staff) would stay after work and have a few drinks and wait for the ghost to make noises down the fireplace chimney and occasionally swing the door open between the kitchen and dining room. No breeze, no way for the door to Swing open Unassisted. Sometimes there were creaks and groans from the old building though we figured it was settling.supposedly the old cellar was used as part of the Underground Railway for runaway or escaped slaves heading further north.Posted 1/29/21
