Raynham Hall is another Long Island property—this one located in Oyster Bay—where paranormal activity has been witnessed. This mansion once belonged to Robert Townsend, a spy whose network supplied information to George Washington during the American Revolution. Yaphank’s Woods and the Potter’s Field Cemetery, a burial site for over 150 years, is another place where hauntings have been reported. Visitors to Katie’s Bar in Smithtown have supposedly seen poltergeist activity, and the owner believes it could be the spirits of those who suffered a fire in 1909, when the building was a hotel. In Farmingdale, a being known as the “Long Island Devil” has been seen haunting old Quaker cemeteries. This entity is reportedly over six feet tall and wears a cape. Some say it is the guardian spirit of a young girl cursed to haunt the cemeteries forever. One of the most unusual Long Island paranormal sites is the Hermitage of the Red Owl. Adding to this weird tale is the fact that where the Hermitage once stood is now a Checkers in Brentwood. Legend has it that Charles Codman saw a red owl one night while closing a window, and the bird told him that it was the spirit of Native American chief killed by an adversary, and that his bones lay in a nearby gulley. The owl requested that Charles find the remains and give them a proper burial, and Charles complied. The owl appeared days later to bless him, and according to the stories, there is a dip in the Checkers parking lot where the ravine once was.
