Ghosts in the Mansion The history and hauntings of Lemp mansion


Lemp Mansion is a mansion in St. Louis right off of I-55. Many people, of the Lemp family, have died and/or committed suicide in the house. Now Lemp Mansion is a Bed and Breakfast, touring exhibit, restaurant/dinner on Sundays, and has a big Halloween party every year. Many people have reported weird noise and feelings in the house. Because of the deaths in the house, people have started to think it may be making all these weird and scary events happen. Are these events ghosts or just a figment in your imagination?

In Lemp Mansion you may experience weird things like:

The History of Lemp Mansion:

Lemp Mansion is said to be one of the 10 most haunted places in the world

Originally a brewery and grocery store started by Johann Adam Lemp (Adam Lemp died on August 25, 1862)

Frederick Lemp was the 1st person die in the lemp mansion from heart failure in 1901

William Lemp (Adam Lemp’s son) was very sad that his son Frederick died so he shot himself and became the second dead in the mansion on February 13, 1904

William Lemp Jr. took over as president after his dad died, inher

William Jr. married Lillian Handlan and had William Lemp III in 1900

William Jr. had another kid with another woman that had down syndrome

The kid was supposedly an “embarrassment to the family so he was hidden away from the world in the attic of the Lemp Mansion

The “Monkey Faced Boy” is said to still haunt the Lemp Mansion

William Jr. and Lillian divorced sometime in 1908

Charles Lemp also committed suicide in 1949

Are these "ghosts" actually real

Humans want to believe in ghosts when they don’t understand what is happening

It’s a way for us to believe an explanation

We are interested in the unexplained, mysterious things so we jump to a conclusion without thinking, researching, or anything

As humans, we will question anything and if something doesn’t make sense to us we automatically believe unreal topics from books, movies, and T.V. shows

Most of the time there is a reasonable explanation

Once someone has seen fictional characters or roles, they may start to believe that it is real life when it could just be their own shadow that they are thinking is a ghost

Once someone believes fiction is reality they may not be able to stop and start to make up an unexplained event with fiction


I believe that these "ghosts" that people think they are hearing, seeing, or felling is just a figment in their imagination. People want to come with an explanation and sometimes ghosts are the closest thing they can think of. Lemp Mansion is known for all the deaths and suicides that people now think there may be paranormal activity from old Lemp family members. I do not think ghosts exist because it has never been researched or proven in any way. The "ghosts" in Lemp Mansion are probably not ghosts at all, just your imagination.
