Legendary Tales of Ringwood

LEGENDARY TALES OF RINGWOOD
Any place as historic and colorful as Ringwood Manor is bound to have all sorts of legendary tales connected with it. Ringwood has its full share.
Peter Hasenclever, the colorful ironmaster, is said to have lived in grand style much like a feudal lord. He ate from gold plates, had negro boys to carry his wife's train and had a brass band play for him every evening at dinner. He was known quite generally and is often referred to as Baron Hasenclever, a title possibly conferred on him by virtue of his position in the community and his extravagant manner of living.
Ghosts and spirits are quite common at Ringwood. In the depths of Peters and Hope Mines the miners at intervals used to hear strange knockings nearly always followed by a serious accident. When this knocking began the miners would quit work at once nor would they return until their fears were dispelled and they were reassurred by officials that all was well. These self-imposed lay-offs often lasted several days.
"Spook Rock" is located on one of the old mine roads and every now and then the spirit of one of the early settlers issues from a crack in the rock and with moans and strange wailings terrifies the wayfarer.
There is a strange ghost in the house. Never seen and only heard in four rooms the ghost seldom appears, but whenever he does, it is always on a stormy and dismal night. He enters the house, slams the front door, waking everyone. He stalks across the hall, up the stairs to the second floor hall, across this hall and stops. He makes not another sound until he appears at some future date to repeat his nocturnal visit.
