The Sawyer House is a house located outside of Stoneybrook, CT on Sawyer Road.

General[]

Shea Rodowsky told his brother Jackie that the house was haunted. People have seen all kinds of weird stuff happening here. Lights going on and off in the middle of the night, doors that were locked hanging open, and smoke coming from the chimney. Sometimes people see a woman walking around, and they say it’s the ghost of a woman who died here.

The caretaker is William Blackburn.

The house is located between two bridges that gets frequently flooded. The Krashers and Charlie Thomas get stranded here when it's raining on the way home from a game. They spend the night in the mansion.

Description[]

Living Room: there are comfy-looking sofas upholstered in expensive-looking fabric that are grouped around an immense fireplace.

Formal dining room: a table twice as big as the one at the Brewer/Thomas Family house. There were twenty chairs with beautiful needlepoint seats set around it, and an elegant silver bowl had been placed in the center of its gleaming surface.

Kitchen: is adjoined the dining room. There is a huge cookstove and a gas stove that stood in one corner.

Library: floor-to-ceiling shelves full of books, plush rugs, rich brown leather chairs, needlepoint pillows, brass lamps, and – a full-sized pool table surrounded by gleaming dark wood. A chandelier hung over the middle of the pool table, with thousands of crystal droplets that seemed to cascade from a central circle.

Parlor: large, very formal room. Straight-backed sofas with shiny green upholstery sat squarely across from each other. Fancy lace doilies covered their backs and arms. At the windows were heavy, rich-looking draperies. A piano stood in a corner, with a gorgeous paisley shawl laid over it. A framed needlepointed picture hung above the piano. Behind one sofa was a large, low table with a beautiful silver tea set on it. And along the wall was a glass-fronted cabinet full of knick-knacks, such as ivory fans and porcelain figures.

Blue Room: There was a big bed with a canopy, a huge chest of drawers, and a fireplace. We crowded into the room. The bedspread was blue, and so was the wallpaper. “Maybe this is the blue room,” I said, thinking again of the bells in the kitchen.

Bathroom: a huge old bathtub on feet that looked like big claws. The taps were gold and the spout was shaped like a flower. The bathroom also had a double sink with a mirror over it, and an old-fashioned toilet with a pull-chain to flush with.

Dorothy's Room: in a feminine-looking bedroom with pink and white wallpaper. A portrait of a young girl hung over the bed. She was pretty, with dark hair and a sad, sweet smile. A brass nameplate below the painting said Dorothy. It connects to the bathroom. A lacy white canopy was draped over the bed, and a needlepoint rug with roses all over it was on the floor. A bookcase is built into a comfortable-looking window seat.

Bedroom: The furnishings were dark and heavy, and the bed, covered with a brown spread, stood solidly along one wall. This room also had a fireplace, and over it hung another portrait. This one was of a man, dressed in a tailcoat and looking very stiff.
