Afraid of The Hinsdale House

Have you ever wanted to buy a haunted house? Tonight's guest has bought two. Daniel Klaes, a paranormal author and investigator, purchased his haunted childhood home to re-confront the ghosts of his past. More recently Daniel purchased the infamous Hinsdale house in 2015 and has made it accessible to the public.The back story...The haunted house in Hinsdale, perhaps the most famous haunted house in New York, has all the elements of a good ghost story: a mysterious history, strange sightings, unexplainable events and even an exorcism. The house on McMahon Road first gained notoriety when a book, “Echoes of a Haunting,” was written by Clara Miller/Dandy.Clara and Phil Dandy lived in the house along with their children in the early 1970s.  During their time there, the Dandy family were visited by many spirits. Father Alphonsus, a priest from St. Bonaventure University, was at the house more than once to perform an exorcism. It worked for awhile, but as time went by, the Dandy family lost the battle and ended up leaving the house for good.In 2006 an episode of “A Haunting” aired on the Discovery Channel, based on the Dandy family and their experiences. As the years passed by, a few families have lived in the home but didn’t stay for long.  The last occupants of the Hinsdale House were Joe and Florence Misnik, who passed away a few months from one another.In 2015, Daniel Klaes put in a bid to save the deteriorated structure from being torn down -- preserving the 200 year-old farm house for future generations of paranormal researchers and enthusiasts.Daniel's website is www.danielklaes.com.SUPPORT THE PODCASTWATCH…VIMEO ON DEMAND: Rent the Afraid of Nothing documentary on Vimeo On Demand – and watch two free bonus videos during the 72-hour rental period.
