Anyone who fancies themselves a ghost hunter in the state of New York should make a visit to the Beardslee Castle one of their top priorities. I have heard of and have seen many so-called haunted places in my travels around this wonderful state of ours. I have to say that Beardslee is both one of the most fascinating and one of the most authentic. Beardslee Castle - Little Falls, NY.
Lost for 1,600 years, the royal quarters of Cleopatra were discovered off the shores of Alexandria. A team of marine archaeologists, led by Frenchman, Franck Goddio, began excavating the ancient city in 1998. Historians believe the site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves, yet, astonishingly, several artifacts remained largely intact. Amongst the discoveries were the foundations of the palace, shipwrecks, red granite columns, and statues of the goddess Isis and a sphinx.
It was partially destroyed by a great fire March 13, 1932, just after the baron Robert Lejeune, then owner of the castle, had been installing new central heating. The castle now remains in ruins. Only the chapel behind the castle was spared and still in reasonable condition.
