Haunted Martha’s Vineyard Buildings

When your town’s oldest building dates to 1672, you almost expect a supernatural presence around every corner. Martha’s Vineyard’s history, along with its fair share of strange occurrences, makes it a major hub for ghost hunters and local storytellers alike. Whether you’re fully in touch with the spirit world or you’re a little skeptical, these locations make for a fun and spooky Halloween adventure. Happy ghost hunting!

Haunted Buildings in Edgartown

The Vineyard Gazette Building

Though the ghosts haven’t made headlines, some say this beloved island establishment is haunted. According to the Gazette, the building dates to the 1760s — its builder would go on to serve in the Revolutionary War. Rumor has it that the building served as an almshouse more than a century before the newspaper moved in, and that a fight between two men over a lover turned deadly there. If you’re hoping to connect with these spirits, the Gazette offers building tours year-round. For us, seeing the in-house offset press in action is an even bigger highlight.

59 N. Water Street – Former Daggett House Inn

Barely a block from Vineyard Square, the former Daggett House Inn is now a private residence. When it was an inn, this 18th-century building featured a secret room adjacent to the dining area. Those familiar with Martha’s Vineyard ghosts say you can still feel the presence of two brothers and their dog even walking by.

The Vincent House

The island’s oldest residence is owned by the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust, whose mission to preserve historic properties doubles as a pretty solid perk for local ghosts. The Vincent House is furnished with artifacts from four centuries of island life, making it a fun and interactive stop on your Martha’s Vineyard ghost tour — if you dare.

Oak Bluffs Ghosts

Corbin-Norton House – Ocean Park

This house has burned down twice—first in 1894 then again in 2002—and ghost hunter extraordinaire Holly Nadler says it’s no coincidence. Sisters Julie and Loulou Danzell were behind the well-documented string of 1894 Oak Bluffs arsons, and their spirits still linger on the island. For more of the ghostly details, check out the Gazette’s account of these mysterious events.

Martha’s Vineyard Ghosts in Aquinnah

The Vanderhoop Homestead

Widely considered Martha’s Vineyard’s most-haunted house, the Vanderhoop Homestead is now the Aquinnah Cultural Center. Spirit hunters identify its ghost as a little girl screaming at night, but former residents of the house say they’ve never heard her.

Vineyard Haven

Renear House

The Vineyard Gazette notes that some people have reported hearing doors and windows slam in empty rooms at the Renear house on Church Street in Vineyard Haven, though the house’s owner denies any spiritual presence.

Phantoms by Firelight – Old Sturbridge Village: As the sun sets at Old Sturbridge Village this October, come see Phantoms by Firelight. Explore the myths and folklore of Halloween at the museum. Evening guests will see the Village in a darker, more eerie light. Adding to the experience is a mysterious troupe of performers who have taken over the Village, including gravity-defying acrobats, creepy conjurers, and fate-tempting fire jugglers who appear in firelight shadows.

Davis Farmland & Mega Maze – Lots of great events and attractions including the corn maze, zip lining, food, drink and family events.

The SK Pierce Mansion – Gardner
This attraction is not for the faint of heart.  There is a good possibility that you will witness paranormal activity.  The entities in this mansion are extremely advanced and have demonstrated a unique ability to impose their will “physically” on guests.  For this reason, a detailed injury waiver must be signed by each guest prior to experiencing “the SK Haunted Victorian Mansion”.
