Creepy-Cool in Historic Mansions

Some creepy-cool photos from a walk-through of a couple of historic homes today. I had the pleasure of being invited into these houses. The new owner is looking to give some needed TLC, more info on that soon and maybe info on how you can see the homes for yourself.

In the meantime, here are some highlights from a couple old mansions in SLC.

The door of an old furnace reminded me of a previous spooky Salt Lake City story: Serial Killer Revered Frances Hermans and the dismembered body parts found in the church furnace.

This photo of a barber was on the inside of a cabinet. I just don’t like the look in the man’s eyes. I’m not sure if this is a photo from Utah or from elsewhere, but I want to find out.

This page from Little Red Riding Hood was found in the basement (where other people in the group felt a ghostly presence).

A portion of a wall showing multiple layers of wallpaper.

A Beer bottle from Fisher Brewing. This bottle dates to the 1930s and early 1940s based on the label style. 

Detail of the beer label showing the State of Utah Beer Stamp Tax label.

A staircase to nowhere.

Deep grooves at the top of another staircase. Yeah, these were probably made by dragging furniture or something, but in an old, abandoned house my mind wanders to claw marks or deep fingernails.

Neat kitchen lighting.

Ivy has grown into the house giving me some vibes of The Upside Down from Stranger Things.
