The Story Behind Delaware’s Most Haunted House Is Beyond Terrifying

Woodburn Mansion in Dover was built in 1790 and remains one of the finest examples of Georgian homes in the entire state. The 7 bedroom house has been home to many of Delaware’s wealthy citizens, and it was bought by the State of Delaware in 1965 to be the Governor’s Home. It was then renovated to make it more modern. One thing has stayed the same, though, throughout all of the years and all of the residents of the Governor’s House – the ghosts of Woodburn Mansion. They appear in many forms, mostly pleasant, and have been heard and seen by so many people that it’s hard to dispute the fact that there’s just something not quite right about the entire estate. Take a look, and let us know what YOU think. Is Woodburn haunted?
