The Rectory was
built over 130 years ago and is listed on the National Historic
Register. Although no longer in use by any church, renovations
are being done to try and restore it back to its original
The sprawling mansion offers many nooks and crannies for ghost
hunters and stands four levels high. On the first level, it has
a parlor, a living room, library, formal dining room, a kitchen
as well as a bathroom. The kitchen has a servants staircase
going up to the second level where the servants quarters are
located. The second level has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and
a beautiful staircase going to the first floor. It also has a
staircase leading up to the huge attic. It is located near the
Private Ghost Hunt with American
Father Donald Macleod
Many believe that spirits linger in the building. A number of
volunteers have been working on painting and restoring the
inside of the Rectory. Several have left and promised not to
return. Some have seen dark shadows or mist, while others report
seeing movement under the doorway when only two people are
working at the time.
The Rectory has had its share of deaths.
One man was found dead on the street in front of the Rectory and
it was also discovered that, years ago, a child was found dead
in front of it with a noose around the child's neck.
Father Donald MacLeod,
author of The
History of Roman Catholicism in North America,
was struck by a train and killed in Sedamsville near this
location in the late 1800's. He was on his way to provide
comfort and sermon to a seriously ill woman when he was hit by
an oncoming train on the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Railroad
and killed instantly.
For years following his tragic death, parishioners and people in
the community spoke of seeing his ghostly image, often walking
down at the foot of Steiner Street where the Rectory is located,
down by the tracks where he was struck by the train. Visitors to
the Rectory have reported hearing footsteps, voices, doors
opening and closing, and often times a figure of a man dressed
in a dark clergy robe walking from one room to the next. Many
believe his spirit still haunts Sedamsville to this day.
Find out if the Sedamsville Rectory is really as haunted as so many people
claim and perhaps come face to face with one of the former
residents of the house! The evening will include historic
background of the Rectory, followed by an all-night ghost hunt at
a place that has been called one of the most haunted in
the Cincinnati area. The Sedamsville Rectory ghost hunt begins at
8:00 p.m. on September 3 and continues until 56:00
a.m.-- or until
the last guests go screaming from the building!
