A wonderful old church, now a private residence
famiily home of General Anthony WayneFemale visitors to the house have heard sobbing sounds coming from the attic as well as the sound of shattering glass, but these are not heard by male visitors. One of the more recent occurrences was reported in 1997, when the site manager of the house told the Main Line Today magazine that she had awakened in the middle of the night by the sound of a woman sobbing in the attic and of glass breaking.
According to local tradition, Hannah Wayne, who had resided in the house in the mid-1800's had been alone in the house doing her chores, and had gotten stuck in the trap door into the attic. Though she managed to free herself, she knocked over a candle in the process and ignited her dress. In a state of panic, she rushed to the nearest window and kicked out the glass, hoping that someone would then be able to hear her screams. She succumbed tot he flames moments later.
The house is currently under the control of Chester County for historic preservation and is listed as a historic landmark.

- Thistle Mill at Ilchester, Md. -- 4 Nov 2015 -- Quick jaunt to site of infamous paperworks, spirit sightings, gruesome deaths, poisonous chemicals, strange goings-on, long dark interest. Numerous photos of the now demolished (and excavated) mill and surrounding area. Liz' rods were wildly communicative (as usual), this time with a spirit identifying itself as "BZZ". We wonder if this was the suicidal Robert Buzzard identified by Lonster in his investigations of the mill. See the old report in EGQ1
