This pump house has been a favorite for people who like ghost stories and haunted things in the area for as long as I can remember. A lot of websites call it the Benjamin Pump House even though I think it’s technically between Lake Shore and Palmyra.
These pump houses are for irrigation water and aren’t that uncommon, but the fact that so many kids talk about made me want to at least document it.
There are haunted places websites talking about a man getting caught in a machine and dying and another man trying to get him out and getting his arm caught and also dying. They also say there are unexplained lights and noises at night.
Another very common mix up for people is they go to the Larsen/Moran House and call it the pump house, it wasn’t a pump house, it was a residential home.
