A storm-damaged tree in Durand-Eastman Park, Rochester, New York is attracting a lot of publicity due to it’s resemblance to a famous local ghost.

The ghost the tree is said to resemble is known as the ‘white lady’ and has been sighted numerous times over the years around the Rochester park area.

Famous Rochester ghost appears on storm damaged tree

A local historian was quoted as explaining the Rochester White lady’s story as the following:

“She lived near Durand Eastman and she had a teenage daughter, and the daughter asked if she could walk down to the lake. As the story goes, she never came home. The mother went out to search, and she couldn’t find her. The mother spent the rest of her life looking for her. It’s said on misty nights; she’d glide over the lake, all in white, glided over the waves.”

There are also additional details added to the story locally including the daughter having been murdered by either her lover or local criminals. Also, some sightings report a pair of spectral dogs flanking the woman who will chase anyone who gets too close to their mistress.

Due to the frequency and varied nature of the sightings of the ghost, some locals believe the white lady to be the work of a local artist rather than an actual entity.

There are several regularly sighted ghosts known as the ‘white lady’ worldwide with the most prominent being from Rochester, New York, Britain, and Ireland. Most of the other sightings follow a similar story although some are much older and center around medieval ruins.

The White Lady is most commonly sighted around a local landmark many refer to as the White Lady’s Castle. Despite it’s resemblance to a castle with what look like half submerged battlement walls, the ruins are those of a refectory from the depression era. In that case presumably not being related directly related to the white lady who has been sighted in the area since the 1800s.

Despite the regularity of the ghost’s appearances in the local area, and the work of local historians, no historical records matching the story of the white lady have been found. Perhaps meaning that the story predates the estimates of the locals or that the local artist story is more plausible.

The ghostly image of the tree, however, is certainly not the work of any artist, and many locals who have seen the white lady claim that it closely resembles her. The image was first seen after a storm ripped a large section of the tree and had been attracting visitors to the park ever since.

Regardless of the true origin of the white lady ghost, the story looks set to rekindle interest in the local legend and will no doubt attract both ghost hunters and local visitors to the park for the foreseeable future.
