Haunted Mansions of the Gilded Age #12 The Manor

The John Teele Pratt Mansion, The Manor at Glen Cove, New York.

The house that was simply known as, The Manor was built for John Teele Pratt and his family in 1909 by  notable architect, Charles A. Platt. Located at Glen Cove, Long Island, New York the home and estate are now a conference center, called, The Glen Cove Mansion.

The house also is notable for also having it's former owners as full time guests. Supposedly the ghosts of Mr. & Mrs, John T. Pratt have been seen by employees of the hotel as stated in this article in the Glen Cove Patch. I guess when you have a glorious home on earth, why leave?
