Halloween is right around the corner, so it’s only fitting we share some of Saint Paul’s most notorious haunted houses. Join us as we take a brief dive into the history of the home, share what entities are believed to haunt the home present-day, while also telling the stories of how these spirits moved from this world to the next.

Griggs Mansion

Located at 476 Summit Avenue, the Griggs mansion is rumored to be one of Saint Paul’s most haunted homes. The mansion was built in 1883 by Chauncey and Martha Griggs.
