Constructed originally by Thomas Halsey in 1648, the Halsey house is located in Southampton and is believed to be the oldest English-style house in New York state. Today the home is open to the public as a museum.  However, if you visit, keep an eye out for ghostly spirits of the Halsey family lurking about the home.
