Freaky Friday: Haunted Herbie at Madam Brett Homestead

Welcome to Freaky Friday!

The Madam Brett Homestead is an early 18th-century home located in the city of Beacon, New York, United States. It is the oldest standing building in this part of Dutchess County and has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1976. It is also listed on the NYS Independence Trail.

“If you see me, a red cloaked figure riding past in the dark, don’t be afraid. I’m only surveying my land. I’m only visiting you, my neighbors.”

These were the words of an actor portraying a ghost in the annual Ghost in the Mist Walking Tour presented by the Beacon Historical Society in Beacon, N.Y.
