History of the Pabst Mansion

Pat explores the history of this famous haunted mansion in Milwaukee. Built from 1890-1892, this large, three story home became the home for the Pabst family. It later became a home for priests and nuns for the archdiocese before turning into a museum still welcoming visitors today.

The Debate

Pat and Rebecca debate if the mansion is haunted. People claim to have seen the ghost of Frederick Pabst as well as felt the presence of his spirit in the home. Chandeliers move, candles fall, and disembodied voices are heard in the mansion and in the abandoned brewery.
