Haunting of Victoria Rowell-West Lebanon, Maine
Posted by: Linda Clark (ID *****3946) Date: January 05, 2014 at 13:49:35
  of 867

The program started out saying that Victoria Rowell is an accomplished actress (Diagnosis Murder and several other things.) She grew up in rural Maine (West Lebanon, Maine)

The story of her haunting/ghost story is on the program Celebrity Ghost Stories on the Biography Channel.

The descendants of the original owners said that the bedroom that Gloria slept in had once been used as a "viewing room" for the dearly departed and that in many cases the dearly departed family members were buried on the property. The name of where she grew up was mentioned but I will leave that to viewers.

I am from Maine and have done lots of research. It was very common for family members to have viewings in the home in the "parlor"' or "front room" of a family members home or the deceased person's home and many times they were buried on the property. It was common way back when. Many of my ancestors were viewed in the parlor and buried "out back"
