Monte Cristo. This beautiful restored 19th century mansion is known as Australia’s most haunted house and one of the most haunted houses in the world. Why? Because so many tragedies occurred in the house and some “ten distressed souls” are not yet a peace? Who were they? In 1961 a caretaker was murdered in the house; earlier a maid fell to her death from the balcony; a stable boy was killed in a fire; a boy died falling down the stairs; and the owner’s baby daughter was accidentally dropped down the stairs by a nanny and a pregnant woman died in childbirth in the house. Supposedly the long living mistress of the house, Elizabeth Crawley is another ghost? Is this enough to make a house haunted? There are two houses on the property which began as a pastoral estate by Christopher Crawley who took up his first 840 acres here in 1876. He built a homestead in 1876 which later became the servants’ quarters, kitchen and dairy. Then in 1878 the southern railway to Albury and Melbourne passed through here and the government resumed 80 acres of his lands for a town. At that time Crawley opened the Railway Hotel (now the Junee) by the railway siding. He sold some lands some around the new fledgling township of Jewnee (after an early pastoral estate using a Wiradjuri word) at high prices. The town name was soon changed to Junee. By 1884 Crawley had sold his successful hotel and with the proceeds he built a grand Victorian two storey residence with cast iron lace work on the verandas. He became a gentleman farmer. He had seven children and donated land for the Catholic Church. Christopher Crawley died in 1910 and his wife in 1933. The family lived in the house until 1948. The contents were sold in 1952 and the house left vacant which enticed vandals to almost destroy it. It was purchased with over two acres by the Ryan family in 1963 and they began the difficult task of a full restoration only finishing that in the 1980s.
