Care to share your home with nine spirits? Then, the Enslin House is for you!

Dubbed the Most Haunted House in Troy, New York, the Enslin House was built in 1890 and has been owned by the same family for six generations.

If ghostly apparitions don’t spark your interest, you might be interested instead in a different kind of spirit associated with the house. The grandfather of the current owner ran a speakeasy when booze was available there only to those in the know. The grandfather is still hanging out in the house to keep you company and possibly to pour you a drink. You might be joined by gangster, Jack “Legs” Diamond, known to visit during his living days, or Shirley, a former renter who died after falling (or being pushed?) down the basement stairs. Four other ghosts are members of the current family, and the remaining are unidentified men who float around the basement, which the current owner keeps locked.

In recent years, the home has been visited by television crews and paranormal investigators and featured on Discovery ID and TLC.

Located in a commercial zone in Troy’s Lansingburgh neighborhood, the home offers possibilities as a single family home, rental, eatery, or other business.

Until the home sells, you can stay the night. The current owner, Michelle Bell, offers the house on Airbnb.
