In Stambovsky v. Ackley, the Supreme Court of New York
ruled that a seller does not need to disclose the fact that a house
is haunted unless there is a fiduciary relationship or in cases of
fraud or misrepresentation. Stambovsky v. Ackley, 169 A.D.2d 254 (NY
App. Div. 1991), is a notable New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division
case that held that a house, which the owner had previously advertised
to the public as haunted by ghosts, was legally haunted for the purpose
of an action for rescission brought by a subsequent purchaser of the
house. It is sometimes called the "Ghostbusters case", a
reference to the author rhetorically asking "who you gonna call"
to resolve a haunting. Because of the case's unique holding, it has
been regularly printed in textbooks on the subject of contract law
and widely taught in U.S. law school classes, if not often cited or
followed by other courts.
During the course of her ownership of the property at
issue, which was located in Nyack, New York, Helen Ackley and members
of her family had reported seeing numerous poltergeists in the house.
Ackley had reported the existence of ghosts in the house to both Reader's
Digest and a local newspaper on three occasions between 1977 and 1989,
when the house was included on a five-home walking tour of the city.
Neither Ackley nor her realtor, Ellis Realty, revealed the haunting
to Jeffrey Stambovsky before he entered a contract to purchase the
house in 1989 or 1990. Stambovsky was from New York City and was not
aware of the folklore of Nyack, including the widely known haunting
When Stambovsky learned of the haunting story, he filed an action
requesting rescission of the contract of sale and for damages for
fraudulent misrepresentation by Ackley and Ellis Realty. A New York
Supreme Court (trial court) dismissed the action, and Stambovsky appealed.

old times, runs the legend, when the splendor and glory
of the plantation were in bloom, some ghostly being came
gliding into the house. Night had fallen, and the bats were
coursing erratically in the gloom of the trees and the weeping
moss, occasionally swooping about the chimney tops and gibbering
at the wind which moaned at every corner. A steamboat appeared,
slackened its speed, then landed at an old warehouse which
stood a short distance above the house yard. A slave was
sent to ascertain the object of the landing. When he reached
the landing place the boat was speeding away. He looked
about in vein, for nothing was there. Returning by a road
under the trees in the pasture he ran almost into something
that was darker than the night. He started back. The blackness
vanished. He ran frantically into the plantation house and
swore that he had seen a ghost.

History of the Pope - Walton House
Fine Dining restaurant has been an institution in the
Atlanta, Georgia area since 1967 when the authentic Southern
plantation home was moved to Buckhead from Wilkes County,
Georgia. The house is charming, elegant and unique, as
there are not very many authentic antebellum homes within
the city limits of Atlanta. Atlanta is rich with Civil
War history; Union General William T. Sherman, made camp
on the current grounds of the Georgia State Capitol and
burned down most of the homes before making his way to
Savannah. Therefore Atlanta is not rich with authentic
antebellum architecture. However, you can still experience
the beauty and charm of the Old South today at Anthony's

buildings appear to be particularly attractive to ghosts.
These last are often alleged to be souls of former residents
whose earthly mission was tragically cut short, leaving
a frustrated spirit grasping at bizarre means to capture
the attention and support of the living in order to resolve
personal unfinished business. Of course, the older the building
the longer the list of resident souls and the greater the
possibility of drama. No antebellum plantation home is without
at least one ghost, running the gamut from wispy shadows
to an assortment of aggressive, howling poltergeists. Oak
