I just joined. I live near the Salem/Dent County area and I was wondering if anyone knows the full and true story about the Ryder Mansion. I've heard plenty of rumors but so far no actual fact. If anyone has any information it would greatly appreciated! :D

I just found out a couple weeks ago that a young guy just bought the ryder mansion. Right now he lives by pizza hut in Salem. I have heard all kind of rumors about them.

Briefly, when I was younger. It was a beautiful place, and at the time I didn't know about the rumors. I didn't feel anything there, except awe at the house.

I think it looks like the movie, The Shining. I have thought about asking the guy that has bought it about the rumors, but I dont know if I should. I heard all kind of things like hauntings, etc.

Yeah I live in Salem. I like to just take drives on the county roads and what not. Thats how I discovered the place. There was never anyone out there or anything going on and then one time I went by there, there was a Black Jaguar car sitting there. The next time I went out by there a green Lincoln was sitting there and was there for quite some time. I then seen that same Lincoln sitting at a small house on the street where Pizza Hut is. Thats how I figured out that the guy bought the Ryder House. I actually asked a lady at Pizza hut when me and some friends were there eating. She said he bought the small house there and redone it to live in it while the Ryder house gets renovated, then he would just rent that little house out when he moves out there. I dont know where he gets his money because he doesnt look that old, but he must be well off. Im nosey too. Its kind of like Witches of Eastwick with Jack Nicholson. You have this old mansion and a guy just shows up and buys it in a black Jaguar, Haha. What rumors have you heard about the place?

The rumors I've heard vary. I got them all from my mother, who is a tad off her rocker and doesn't remember things like they actually are, so I take what she says with a truck-load of salt. One version was that a mob family (redneck gangsters?) owned the house and some "bad stuff" went down in there. Another is that a family with a little girl lived there, and the father ended up raping and killing his daughter. Her room is supposed to be (or was for a long time) untouched. Other than that, I've just heard that it was haunted. I was starting to wonder if all big houses automatically got that stigma after awhile, seeing as if a house is large it seems to be instantly labeled "haunted". How about you?

Re: ryder mansion

I heard the same about the gangsters. I also heard that there was a group that owned it at one time, that was into swinging. Which eventually led to someone getting shot in there. I also heard that a dead older woman was found in the greenhouse. Supposedly you can go by there, this is before this guy bought it, and lights would go on and off and the street lamp posts that line the drive would come on even though there was no electric on there. My friend said the guy that owns it now, name is Blaze. What a weird name. Do you live in Salem?

If you ever run into that guy I guess you could ask him. Maybe he would even give you a tour.

I don't know how your uncle could own it because we bought the house a few years ago and live in it now. Oh and by the way, it is very haunted and we love it.

if you are talking about the same place I am thinking of, there are some liars out there! I am sitting in the small house looking out at the big house right now! 3-5-2010...The big house is vacant and as a matter of fact I captured some pretty crazy pics last night! As for Blaze being the owner, that is a lie! I have met him, he has been here, he is real, just not the owner of the Ryder Mansion!It can be a very scary place! I have had experiences here! Not real fun ones!!!!

Very confused

A friend of mine and I were out looking at the house just yesterday(not vandalizing, just admiring). It looked to us that nobody even lives in the small house. So, do they? Yet, the grass and bushes out front were pretty well kept up. Oh, and why did the family who built the mansion leave? Just curious.
