The Brumder Mansion in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has seen many owners since it was built in 1910 by George Brumder Jr. It is now an operational Bed & Breakfast with a few permanent non-paying house guests.

It might be haunted by some of the previous home owners, or it could be haunted by the previous owners of the many antiques that furnish the rooms, but whatever the reason, it is extremely active.

According to the present owner, Carol Hirschi, the Gold Suite is the most active room. Guests report having strange and vivid dreams while sleeping in that room and they also feel the presences of spirits. One particular guest reported being kept up by sounds of people talking all night long.

Carol has reported the most frightening experience. She was checking the Gold room days after the last guest had left and the room had been cleaned. She found several drops of fresh blood in the bathtub. At first she thought the blood had fallen from the ceiling, but there was no sign of anything dripping from the ceiling. The source of the blood was never found.

Most of the other unexplained occurrences in the home have been playful and not threatening. The programmable doorbell has a mind of its own and plays Happy Birthday when something else has been programed to play. Doors slam on their own in the middle of the night, breakable items fall from the walls, but they are never broken, and phantom footsteps walk the halls.

A psychic visiting from California informed Carol that there were at least two spirits roaming the home, a woman and a child, who are not necessarily related. Carol believes the woman to be that of George Brumder’s aunt. She thinks this because she was awakened in the middle of the night while sleeping in the Gold room by a woman spirit who demanded that the family dog be removed from the room. The lady was notorious for hating dogs while she was alive and apparently she hasn’t warmed up to them since her death!

If you are ever in Milwaukee and in need of a room for the night, you might try a night at the Brumder Mansion. If you do, don’t forget to write to me and let me know what happened.

The Brumder Mansion Bed & Breakfast is located at 3046 W. Wisconsin Avenue. Call Carol at 414.342.9767 for more information or visit The Brumder Mansion website.

      I do have an interest in spirits - Your invitation is enticing, however I think I'll only read about them.
