Madame Sherri’s made our list of Nature Reclaimed Spots in NH, but did you know it’s also considered haunted. Madame Sherri was an eccentric Broadway costume designer in the mid-1900s. Known for her exotic parties and pet monkey, she built a “castle” in the middle of the forest in Chesterfield, NH. The castle was destroyed by fire in the 1960s and only the staircase remains. The Madame has reportedly been seen descending the staircase and vanishing at the bottom. Regardless of whether you see a ghost or not, with the fall leaves and ruined arches it makes a spooky backdrop for great Halloween photos.
