Explore the story of the Putnam Family and wander the dark hallways for yourself. We now offer Haunted History tours of The Anchorage Mansion! First enjoy a history & ghost tour of the building that will last 60 minutes, and end with an optional 30 minute paranormal investigation in some of the most haunted areas.

Built in 1859, this Italianate mansion was the ambitious dream of Eliza Putnam, and she poured her heart and soul into its design. Unfortunately, she died three years after it was built, but legend has it that she has never left.

Many families moved in and out over the years, each once adding something special to this mansion once known as 'Putnam's Folly'. From the 1960s-1980s it operated as a senior care facility and was the last home many of its residents knew. Today, the 23 room mansion is under renovation by the Washington County Historical Society. Tours are provided by Hidden Marietta, with a portion of every ticket going to preservation of this monumental and historic building.

60 minute tours: $15 for adults, $10 for children under 12.
Add a 30 minute paranormal investigation for just $5 per person.
