The central oak staircase in the lobby takes visitors up to the second floor and landing, which has three
bedrooms/suites. From there, a second staircase in back leads up to what was the servants quarters on the third floor, which has three rooms and the innkeeper’s apartment. There are a total of six guest bedrooms for visitors to the Brumder Mansion Bed and Breakfast.
A PARANORMAL HOTSPOT
Given the Brumder Mansion’s long and storied history (including its period as a mob-owned hideout with a
basement SpeakEasy in the 1930s, with connections to Al Capone), it’s no surprise that it has long been a paranormal hotspot, and a favorite with ghost-hunters, psychics, and spiritual adventurers. If paranormal investigations are your cup of tea, the Brumder Mansion should be on your “Must Go There” list.
Nationally-recognized psychic and ghost hunter Jeffrey Seelman has personally had several otherworldly encounters at the Brumder.
“I’ve experienced 7 friendly spirits here,” he said in a recent interview.
The Northern Alliance Of Paranormal Investigators hit pay dirt during their first investigation, bringing
sensitive investigators that our entities warmed up to! They gathered at least 5 EVPs, and had personal experiences as well. Cheri commented in her report, “It is a very warm and welcoming building. A great place to have a brush with the paranormal in a friendly manner. It didn’t take long for them to become curious and make themselves known.”

“During my visit and investigation of the Brumder Mansion, I had my own set of experiences… While setting up to perform an EVP session in the basement, a quick wispy blob of white mist shot past my face! It was big and fast and gone before I knew it. Also in this area, I was exploring a back room where a tunnel may have once provided a safe escape for Mr. Picks and company. In one of the back corners, I clearly heard the sound of a chair or other object moving. When I moved forward to investigate, a large shadow mass shot away from me.”
“Despite the paranormal activity in the premises, everything is of a benevolent nature and you won’t regret visiting with Susan and George, Jr.!”
