Next door to this room is the Great Hall. This entryway from the front veranda still holds the history and charm of the original home, opening up into another dining area. Glass cases that are located here once held political and military memorabilia that was collected by Charles McMackin. The Great Hall is also noted for its eerie ghost sightings, as well as its history. It is here that McMackin family members, restaurant staffers and customers have often glimpsed the small figure of little Matthew McMackin, who died here from influenza in 1915. The small boy is seen walking and playing in this area and then he disappears around the corner into the McMackin Room, which was the original parlor of the house.

The Great Hall - where the ghost of Matthew McMackin is sometimes encountered.

Strangely, it’s around this corner where another ghostly sighting takes place as well. On a number of occasions, staff members have seen what appears to be a glowing white light that skirts the edge of the corner and then also disappears into the parlor. Could this also be Matthew’s ghost? Perhaps it is but it still remains a mystery - and a mystery that was not solved by an investigation of the house by American Ghost Society members that took place in November 2002.

During a tour of the house that was given to us by several staff members, Hal Harrison and two of the McMackin family members, investigator Luke Naliborski filmed a strange image using an infrared video camera. Just as we rounded the corner and entered the parlor (following the same path as the light and the ghost of the boy), the video camera picked up the image of a white, shimmering light that was roughly the size of a human fist. It shot into the room at high speed, moving back and forth erratically, and it curved to the right, then to the left to circle the head of Ellen McMackin. It then shot upward to the right and vanished into the wall. Analysis of the image has shown no natural or artificial explanation for what this bizarre light could be.
