It starts with the sounds—creaking floors and slamming doors, fading footsteps down empty halls—a feeling of being watched, tingling taps on the shoulders, spectral shapes crouched in corners or gathered in front of fireplaces long gone cold. Tricks of the imagination in an old house once inhabited by a skilled writer of ghost stories … or something else? Take a ghost tour and decide for yourself. Tour guide Robert Oakes leads you through the darkened halls of The Mount in Lenox, MA, sharing tales of the many eerie encounters that have been reported there for years.
