The Story Behind Philadelphia’s Most Haunted House Will Give You Nightmares

Philadelphia is full of spooky haunted houses, graveyards, and historic sites. Grumblethorpe Manor is one of these places – a nearly three hundred-year-old building that was the home of a wealthy Philadelphian wine vendor. The storied history of Grumblethorpe tells of a gruesome past where a British General was mortally wounded (his blood still stains the floor in the parlor) and where a family hid from the Yellow Fever epidemic. Though Grumblethorpe is currently used as everything from a farmers market to a re-enactment site, there’s no denying it’s spooky history and haunted halls that have been the site of unexplained paranormal happenings.
