It has not been torn down, it has been relocated. I lived in Suffield, and go back and visit often. The carriage house has been torn down though. When I was in high school friends and I use to go into both the carriage house and the mansion and I will say that when we were in it random lights would turn on and off. The Carriage House was very interesting, we walked all around it (wasn't that big really) and it gave you an weird feeling while in side.

I have always been "drawn" to that house. I always felt like it was part of me somehow. I have been in it a couple of times, I never SAW anything but I did feel like I was being watched but not enough to scare me. One day while riding past with my grandmother she told me that my deceasaed grandfather had always been "drawn" to that house as well. Come to find out he was adopted and his birth mothers maiden name was Kent.

Let me assure you that it has not been torn down.  I live in Suffield and drive by it every day on my way to work, although it's a private residence now.

I would love to have the history of this place. I am a Kent and have never been to CT. These Kents are my ancestors. Benajah Kent 1746 is my 4th g grandfather. Who built this place? A few years ago I inquired about it and it was supposed to be a foundling home or something like that, but I had never heard it was haunted until this year. My son who lives in New York looked it up and it was listed as haunted. I hope they dont tear it down until I can get back ther to see it. Rose Kent Adams in CA.

It was not torn down, and it is now privatly owned. The carriage house was taken down years ago, but the orininal house still remains.

The only "known" haunted house in town is the old Kent mansion at the junction of Mountain Road and Sheldon Avenue. Although nobody lives there, the house has been seen with lights on and shadows in the windows. There are reports of poltergeist activity and for the back hallway to the second story having a "cold, chilling sensation" at times. Local lore has it that its benefactor, Sidney Albert Kent, is the local ghost.

Kent left other indelible marks on the town, including funding the library, which now bears his name. And the Kent name is only one of the many names that have carried down through the local population since colonial times; a walk through the local cemeteries will find tombstones liberally chiseled with names like Hastings, Orr, Fuller, Remington, Phelps, Moody, Spencer, Hale, Adams, Sikes (Sykes), Pomeroy, Miller, Patterson, Russell, Wells, Loomis, Fowler, Hathaway, Sheldon - names that not only defined the town, but the state and even the country.

The Kent Mansion is NOT haunted and it is now privately owned. I have been in there.

The lights have been known to turn "on and off" because there are actually people inside it.

I live in Suffield and I drive by that place well over 5 times a week. I just passed by it today twice.  It's occupied.

I live next door to this house. It is occupied and the owner leaves all the lights on at night. No one in the neighborhood has ever said anything about it been haunted. It is a beautiful home. The owner owns half of the town.

I have been in this house it seems to be haunted because the owner has painting of people and as you walk by they seem to follow you. I have been to all the floors and all lights always stay on. Also the owner of the house is very nice and he seems to like it there.
