Now a twenty-room museum providing glimpses into American history, Raynham Hall was originally home to the Townsend family. During the Revolution it was also used to quarter British soldiers, including Major John Andre, who attempted to bribe Benedict Arnold to surrender his troops only to have the plot foiled by Townsend’s daughter, who overheard his discussion and had it reported to General George Washington.

Andre is said to still wander the building and has been seen by multiple visitors, and he is not alone. Another officer allegedly quartered a lover in the mansion, and her room now feels unusually cold compare with the rest. A third spirit, the lady in the kitchen, will occasionally welcome guests with the scent of cinnamon and apples baking.
