Crier in the Country Restaurant - Real Haunts in Glen Mills PA
- 1 Crier in the Country Lane
- Glen Mills, PA
This house was built in 1740 and served as the residence for Lydia Powell and her husband. In the 1940's it became an inn/restaurant. Some say Lydia Powell did not want to leave the property and was forced to sell it. She also engaged in poltergeist activity. Many believe she continues to haunt the property. Some have reported seeing the chandeliers move, sightings of apparitions in the upstairs dining room, and sounds of a dinner party when the the dining hall was empty. Today the restaurant is closed.

Most certainly was not haunted
I lived on the third floor of this once lovely old house for the entire time my husband, Jim Devereaux, and I owned the property. My teenage daughter also lived there and attended Garnet Valley High School. Oh, yes, we also had a dog who once jumped off the second floor porch into a tree.
I can tell you, for sure, it was not haunted!! the picture you show does not do it justice. The inside was lovely also. The photo does not show the oldest part of the structure in back of the main building.
The handicap add on and the car port, really spoils the beauty of this lovely old house.
The only reason it looks so bad today is because it has been neglected!! Lorraine Devereaux, Jensen Beach Florida
Deveraux's Fox Crest Inn
Worked there in the 70s when it was Devereaux's Fox Crest Inn. Spent many a night there past closing into the early hours of the morning, and even stayed overnight once on the third floor. Never saw nor heard any ghosts, nor did anyone else working there during those years. Cool looking place for ghost stories though.Posted 3/4/17
