On M53 near Brown City is this old Second Empire mansion built in 1876. It was the home of and built by John G. Bruce who owned the Bruce and Webster General Merchants with his brother-in-law in Burnside township which he was the postmaster for 16 years.
Several sources have said this is one of the most haunted places in Michigan. I am not much of a believer in ghosts but I do like a good story, and rumor has it one of the mansion’s owners was said to have been taking the back roads in his automobile when he hit a pedestrian. Terrified at what he had done, he took the body back to the mansion and buried it somewhere on the estate. Some say the ghost of the victim, others simply guilt, caused the man to lose his fortune and drive him to hang himself in the old bell tower.
Please note this house is not abandoned and do not trespass.
