The Kreischer family once owned and operated a brick factory that supplied most the bricks for the Staten Island area in the 1800s. With their profits, they built two large mansions-one for the original family, and another for their son, and his wife. The second home, which was built far from the main road, suspiciously burned down, taking both the son’s and his wife’s lives. Prior to the burning of the home, a feud had erupted between the son and his father, for which there was no reconciliation. It is said that the home is now haunted by the son and wife, with apparitions appearing, banging noises, and doors slamming on their own. The house has since been converted into a restaurant.
