Theres hardly a room in Belcourt Castle that is specter free. In The Ghosts of Belcourt Castle, author Harle Tinney shares over twenty paranormal experiences at Belcourt Castle in Newport, Rhode Island. This sixty-room mansion was completed in 1894, but it stood empty for many years until Donald Tinney and his family purchased it in 1956.

Accompanied by photographs, The Ghosts of Belcourt Castle, includes personal anecdotes and some third party stories. Tinney recounts some of the homes visitorsthe mysterious monk, the pink lady in the Madames bedroom, the suit of armor that screams, ghostly dancers in the French Gothic ballroom, and a disembodied arm that pointed through the staircase at a painting, which mysteriously fell from the wall only a few minutes later. Judging from the list of apparitions and eerie feelings in some areas, Belcourt Castle might just be the most haunted house in America.
