Cooperstown, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Over the past 200 years, Hyde Hall has evolved from a prestigious family home in Cooperstown to a National Landmark.

Starting July 6th, a tour will take a look at the home and its history with the paranormal, as told by ghosts of past and present.

Englishman George Clarke began building on the home in 1817.

The tour's organizer, Gary Koutnik, says one year after it was completed, Clarke died. Since then, Koutnik says there have been reports of a ghost haunting the mansion.

The haunted tour runs through August 24th.

Tours are given every Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. and then again at 7, although there will be no tour given on July 27th.

Tickets are $10 per person and $8 for those 18 years old and younger.
Proceeds will go toward the continued renovation of the historic home.

Reservations are encouraged.

For reservations call (607) 547-5098.
