While growing up in Holly Hill, hearing ghost stories about the Bolton Mansion was unavoidable. In this edition of Levittown Youtube Theater we explore the various attempts of ghost hunting at our favorite historic Levittown landmark.
There are multiple paranormal legends associated with the Bolton Mansion and everyone has their own version to tell. Most seem to include a woman named Mary and her Civil War era beau. It was a romance that would end with one of them hanging themselves in the main stairway. There are also tales of a little girl that can be seen peering out from the upper-floor windows or the mysterious woman that wanders between the barn and the east side of the mansion looking for someone.
Here’s a selection of videos collected from the Youtubes that attempt to tell the story of a haunted Bolton Mansion.
