Although this might be a good place to meet entities, the reason I traveled to SouthWest Michigan to tour Henderson Castle wasn’t to come face to face with the castles favorite ghosts. They boast of 5 deaths over time inside the castle and pride themselves as a paranormal hot spot with the property situated across the street from a very old cemetery. While I did not experience any apparitions I did enjoy the architecture, history and art of the house and property. Sitting on the highest point in Kalamazoo Michigan makes the view from the terraced roof spectacular. The grounds boast 4 acres with a carriage house, vineyard, wine cave, and orchards. The new owner of the castle is world traveled French Master Chef, Francois Moyet and you can enjoy dining in by candlelight to feast on one of his specialty meals. They also offer monthly events for all ages to enjoy like Murder mystery dinners and princess tea parties.
So if you are looking for a haunted fall excursion close to your location check out one of these Michigan paranormal locations and enjoy a good scare.
