Allyn Mansion, 511 E Wakworth Ave, Delavan, WI For Sale: $1.2 million In 1885, this restored mansion was built for the Allyns, a wealthy farming family. In 1913, Mr. Allyn died while reading his paper in the parlor. Following his death, the property changed hands until it became a nursing home, furniture store and recently a bed-and-breakfast. In 2007 the B&B closed its doors. Some claim it is haunted.
Homeowners Gregory and Sandi Leeson told the Associated Press they've received calls from ghost hunters, but no serious buyers.
