I'm glad you decided to join me here at Zurich Mansion tonight. I am the
curator and director of the tour you are about to take.
It is said that England is the most haunted country in the entire
world. What English castle or stately manor would be complete without a
headless horseman, a gray lady, phantom monk or a ghostly bride?
Tonight I ask you to join me in exploring some of these legends that
surround the phantom figures that have become such an important part of
English heritage. But I do have to warn you that you might not like what you
the room you are in right now, you will find some of the histories of haunted
mansions from all around the world, including Zurich Mansion. The accounts and
descriptions are very real and well documented and I urge you not to take them
lightly. So please take the time to read through them as they will help
prepare you for the journey you are about to take tonight.
Mansion was a manor originally built on the heathers of the English country
side over a thousand years ago. But at the turn of the 17th century the manor
was moved brick by brick to the shores of a small private lake here in the
United States by King Henry (the 8th) VIII. The lake was then renamed Lake
Zurich and you are now standing in a section of this once proud and stately
King Henry VIII moved Zurich
Mansion in a hope that the spirits of his deceased wives and lovers would be
left in England, and since the completion of the Mansion in the United States
many of it's visiting guest have reported seeing strange and unexplainable
things late at night.
I'm inviting you to tour one of the sections of Zurich Mansion that has not
been open to the public for over 150 years. This section was known as
"the East Wing" and was reportedly the most haunted part of Zurich

control over the spirits within "the East Wing" and can not truly
