Here is one take from a paranormal investigator:

"So we both looked up the stairs, and from the back of her head all the way down to her feet you saw a black dress, we grabbed each other and screamed because we were so excited." - Sara Bowker, investigator for Midwest Ghost Investigators

So you see a black dress, you see the back of a woman's head...Yep, I'm so out of there. The story goes, this is a former maid on the Tinker Swiss Cottage that still lives, or doesn't live, maybe just hangs out and cleans on the weekend?

You can now tour the Tinker Swiss Cottage, and yes it's a guided tour. No getting lost or walking into this maid on your own...maybe.

Tours are $20 and you can get more info, HERE
