A Brief History: Located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island sits the Sylvanus Brown House, which was constructed in 1751. The house is named after Sylvanus Brown who lived in it from 1784 until 1824. Brown was a skilled craftsman who helped create machinery for Samuel Slater of the Slater Mill from 1789 to 1791.  During the 1960s the house was relocated to its current location and turned into a museum dedicated to teaching people about cloth making in the late 18th century.

Haunted History: Even though the Sylvanus Brown House is now a museum, it may still have something residing inside it. On a couple of occasions people have reported encountering an apparition named Becca. Even when not in visible form people visiting the museum report hearing her running around inside the house, and sounds of laughter emanating from the rooms.
