The Mount is a historic home in Lenox, Massachusetts constructed in 1902 by the famous American novelist, short story writer, and playwright, Edith Wharton, whose spirit is said to haunt the location along with two other unidentified male specters. After Mrs. Wharton's death in 1937 The Mount was purchased by Foxhollow School For Girls, at which point students and faculty members began to report witnessing apparitions dressed in clothing from the early 1900's, as well as experiencing strange disembodied voices and other sounds. In 2009, The Mount was featured on an episode of the popular television show Ghost Hunters, and was investigated by members of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (also known as T.A.P.S.) over the course of several days.
