TemplateAs a crime writer, David Lohr deals with the horrors of death every day, so it's no surprise that he is especially entranced by tales from the crypt.

In 2007, Lohr purchased his current home, the one you see in the photos here, situated smack dab in the middle of a small town on the outskirts of Erie, Pa. The house was been built 120 years ago by Dr. Garner Spaulding, a wealthy physician who used the upstairs for his family's living quarters and the downstairs not only for his office, but also as a viewing room for the recently deceased.

Prior to the sale to Lohr, a resident of the home died in a downstairs bedroom. His body was not found for more than a week. The home has not seen a death since then. Not yet anyway.

Lohr Haunted Manor has received a lot of publicity in recent years. It was featured on AOL News; HalloweenAttractions.com; Spirithalloween.com; the front page of the Erie Times Newspaper and several other publications. The manor was also named "Best Decorated House" by Erie's FOX 66 and WJET news stations.
