Haunted History of Felt Mansion in Saugatuck, Michigan

Construction of the infamous Felt Mansion began in 1925 when Dorr E. Felt purchased pieces of land in Laketown Township, Michigan. Felt was a businessman who struck it rich with the invention of Comptograph, a key-driven mechanical calculator. After visiting the Saugatuck area during a roadtrip, the Felt family (consisting of Felt, his wife Agnes, and their four daughters) decided to settle down in Laketown Township. Felt soon purchased over a thousand acres of dune land to construct his dream farm.
