Bond Street Mansion

Niles, Michigan

BUILT: c. 1700s or 1800s


The Bond Street Mansion was built sometime during the 18th or 19th century. The family cemetery is located directly across the road from the massive estate. During the 1800s, a little boy was living with his parents in the mansion. One night, the candle at his bedside was blown out by a draft in the middle of the night, which caused him to die of fright. He is buried in one of the cemetery’s tombs.

Rumor has it that the mother had a pathway builder beneath the road so she could visit her son’s grave every night. To this day, you can see her ghost walking across the road and weeping at her son’s grave. Every night, a mysterious light will shine in the upstairs bedroom, then mysteriously go out
