Haunted Joliet mansion sells for $159,000

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A little paranormal activity didn't stop one person from purchasing a vintage mansion in the suburbs.

The Hiram Scutt Mansion is a national landmark. It's a beautiful, 4,960-square-foot brick home in Joliet that was built in 1882.

Some say the original owners are still there. In fact, ghost hunters say the place is haunted. There have been séances and searches throughout the mansion and there have been two murders and at least two mysterious deaths inside.

But that didn't stop one person from taking realtors up on the $159,000 deal.

Reports say the new owner plans to restore the home. The name of the new owner was not released.
