The Morris-Jumel Mansion is considered one of the most haunted places in New York City. It has been the subject of paranormal investigations on television shows like The Holzer Files and Ghost Adventures, and has been featured on the Today Show. Famous paranormal academics and investigators such as Hans Holzer, Zak Bagans, and the Tennessee Wraith Chasers have all visited the site to try and communicate with former residents. People have claimed to see apparitions of all sorts in the mansion, from Hessian soldiers and George Washington to Eliza Jumel, and Aaron Burr.
