Haunted Delaware

Frederica: Mordington
Frederica, Delaware – The old Mordington mansion is reportedly haunted by the ghost of a slave girl known only as “Tom’s Daughter”. According to the legend, she was locked away in the attic after refusing the advances of her owner. She leapt to her death from the window to escape. Her screams as she fell can still be heard in the house. The mansion is south of Frederica on Canterbury Rd.
