Most of the ghost stories seem to stem from the Jumel family. According to legend, Madame Jumel murdered her first husband in order to increase her social status by marrying Aaron Burr, the then former Vice President of the United States. She ended up divorcing Aaron, who later died on the same day that the divorce was officially declared. Eliza Jumel lived on in the mansion until she died in 1865. She kept her first husband’s last name, but apparently went by Burr whenever she was traveling abroad.
Places of interest around the world. Australia doesn't have a monopoly on ghosts!
