Sauers' had servents, all of which were of white decent. The family took part in housing MANY upon MANY men who fought in the wars and also travelers passing through.
Many attempt to claim the mansion is far from being haunted BUT I know for a fact it is.
No restoration has taken place on this amazing beauty for all the 'feak accidents', vadalisim, and insurance issues... PLUS COST~
I have spoken to the grounds keeper many times, he once resided in the house until too many break ins occured, leading to more cost on the mansions restoration and again higher insurance.
In order to restore the mansion to living standards over a million dollars will be required.
The owner does reside in New York but with so many dis respectful persons breaking in and tresspassing, stealing items from inside the mansion and actually hitting the grounds keeper with their cars; The ower makes much more frequient visits.
Sauers Castle is a beautiful beast which has too many stories to contain... much of which has been switched up and arranged to ones taste during stories (naturally how a ghost story comes about)
Mrs Sauers buried children upon the grounds...(later statements claim the infants (died during birth or just after... diseases ect ~ time era) were laid to rest in a family plot... I honestly beleive a couple were left in place If not all the children.
A daughter drowned on the property
Suicides occured... some say due to the pains of diseases claiming lives (ending their life to rid themselves of the pains) Others state due to jealous rages sought out by Mr Sauer upon returning back to the states after long trips home to buy more products to sell in the states and build onto the Mansion...
Both claims fit into play in my opinion considering MANY visited the mansion passing through wether Mr Sauer was home or not Leaving his wife entertaining men and women (along with the servents help)... but still one cant put aside a lack or two of trust...
all in all it is a beauty and even if a dollar here and a dollar there was given (change even adds up quite quick...) this historical beauty would once again be loved and enjoyed by a family~ A museum would be interesting BUT a home would be even more so CONSIDERING Sauer built this 'Castle' taking him back to his days as a child growing up in Germany with his family in their home of love
