About Edna Woolworth Hutton
In October 2015 the Woolworth Mansion burned
The spirit of Woolworth's second daughter Edna is said to linger around the premises after she committed suicide on May 2, 1917.
It is claimed she took her own life at New York City's Plaza Hotel, though many believe the never-unlocked 'Marie Antoinette' room in the mansion was in fact the place of Edna's death, while her father was hosting a party.
Following the incident, a crack appeared in the marble family crest above the fireplace.
Noises have been heard, 'spirit sightings' have been reported, and visitors claimed they heard a woman crying in the Marie Antoinette room.

Edna, married to E. F. Hutton's brother, died young from a suicide, leaving a grandaughter at 7 years old to inherit a large part of his estate. That along with a trust from her father was reportedly squandered and reports of excess caused some rioting among Woolworth employees working at low wages.
