Ghost Hunters TAPS Investigate the 1890 House – CNY Paranormal


Syfy Channel Ghost Hunters, TAPS, recently investigated The 1890 House in Cortland, NY unveiling yet another historic site that has long been rumored to be haunted.

The 1890 House Museum was once the residence of the 19th century industrialist Chester Franklin Wickwire. Constructed to mimic an impressive mansion that he saw on a trip to New York City. They began construction in 1888 and in 1890 the house was finished. It served as his home until his death in 1915 where it then sat vacant for the next 7 years. It continued to change hands and in 1975, Cortland County bought the house and opened it as The 1890 House Museum and Center for Victorian Arts.

Because of our proximity to Canada, which at the time was a British/French territory, Utica and the area surrounding it became the last defense of the soon to be United States. Vicious and bloody battles were fought in the area, staining the area with imprints of that violence.
