Truly Spooky Utah Mansions
McCune Mansion, 200 N. Main St
Popular for hosting weddings, parties, and other events, the McCune Mansion is not always a happy and upbeat place to be. The house was completed in 1901, making it 116 years old; its occupants reportedly include a guy in a black robe and a little girl of 10 who likes to have parties there. At weddings, she makes an appearance, dancing and giggling like a small girl, and her photo may be seen on display around the home. The figure who is claimed to haunt the mansion may most often be seen in the several mirrors strewn around the place during the winter holidays.
Brigham Young’s Farmhouse, 2601 E. Sunnyside Ave.
In 1975, it was relocated from the Avenues to This is the Place Heritage Park, which is located between Seventh East and Twenty-third South. Many people in Salt Lake City believe this house to be the most haunted spot there is. There have been sightings of Brother Brigham, who may have been supervising the repairs, on many occasions. The mansion was also restored by a Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox in the 1950s, who threw a party to honour their accomplishment. They had a conversation with a young man dressed in 18th-century garb and then posed for a picture with him. There was a lot of talk about the home. In any case, when precisely was the picture processed? The only persons in the photo were Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox, thus your guess is right. Brother Brigham’s son, John A. Young, is a leading candidate for this mystery person.
The town of Thistle, Utah
We are not, it should be noted, at somebody’s house. It covers EVERY SINGLE PART of town. In 1983, a landslip caused by heavy rains broke up the Spanish Fork river, causing the river to flood and destroying the close-knit community below it. The community was wiped out entirely by the ensuing devastating flood. It’s a marvel that everyone managed to get out of there alive, considering that they just had a few hours to flee. It is said, however, that many of the villagers’ spirits returned to their former homes when they died on. There’s no denying that the surrounding marshes and half-submerged buildings have a sinister air. Most people stay away from this area after dark due to reports of splashing footprints and voices. Surely it’s just the outgoing local residents saying farewell.
