Lake George, NY


A Brief History: In the late 1600s, Huron Indians were executed and tortured on the grounds where the House of Frankenstein sits.  In the late 1700s, English Colonists used these grounds for the town gallows.  There is an estimated total of over 1000 people who lost their lives at this very spot.  In the late 1800s a private residence was built on this location.  Two brothers owned the house and became troubled and committed suicide in the house.  The house sat abandoned for years and in 1973, the house was demolished.  About a year later, in 1974 a group of Canadians built the structure located at 213 Canada Street Lake George, NY and the House of Frankenstein opened it’s doors, and still remained open.  The House of Frankenstein was the first wax museum and haunted attraction in Lake George.

Haunted History: Employees have claimed to have seen a female apparition walking around, and then disappear.  There have been numerous cold spots felt throughout the building.  After closing up and all of the guests have left the building, employees have claimed that they can hear footsteps walking up and down the stairs.  Some guests have claimed to have had feelings of dread and sadness as they walk through the wax museum.  There have also been claims of seeing shadowing figures roaming the hallways.  So next time your in Lake George stop in the House of Frankenstein Wax Museum and maybe you will experience a little more than you bargained for.
