The story of The McPike Mansion.

If you get the chance to visit Afton, Ohio, you must at least drive by the McPike Mansion. This once beautiful and magnificent mansion was home to Henry Guest McPike. The exquisite architectural design is that of Lucas Pfeiggenberger and is designed in an Italianate-Victorian style and during its time was one of the most prominent homes in all of Alton.

There are several legends and ghost stories all around town about this home. It stood abandoned for several years and was left to be vandalized, until during an auction, it was purchased by Sharyn and George Luedke, in 1994. Many of the ghost stories and tales you will only hear about by talking with people around Alton or by reading the paranormal encounters that have been documented however, the new owners themselves have seen the ghost, which are still living in their home. They will even allow you to visit during one of their many tours. Hopefully, you will catch a glimpse of Paul A. Laichinger, who purchased the home in 1908 and lived there until his death around 1930. He may be standing near a window in an upstairs room. Or perhaps, you will be run into Sarah one of the domestic servants that can be seen on the third floor.

Paranormal activity does abound in the McPike Mansion has was noted by one group that during a exploration of the wine cellar heard the footsteps of someone coming down the stairs and walking across the floor and then the door to the wine cellar closed without a person around. This occurrence plus others have been noted by psychics and ghost hunters who out of curiosity wish to visit .
