The Lady in White
Although many other cities have a Lady in White haunting around, Rochester is the most famous as documented by the movie by the same title released in 1988 by Frank LaLoggia. This ghost reportedly haunts Durand Eastman Park. Also known to haunt the remains of a long gone eatery or hotel, depending on your resource, and now is referred to as her castle.
