Mysteriously, a little girl named Victoria Whaley was buried in an unmarked grave in the Whaley family plot in Mt. Hope Cemetery, although her existence has always been denied by the Whaley family. The most active ghost in the Whaley House is said to be a little girl, supposedly no Whaley girls died in childhood.

Mystisk nok er en lille pige ved navn Victoria Whaley begravet uden gravsten i Whaley-familiens gravsted på Mt. Hope Kirkegård, på trods af, at hendes eksistens altid er blevet benægtet af Whaley-familien. Det mest active spøgelse i Whaley-huset siges at være en lille pige, på trods af, at det hævdes, at ingen af Whaley-familiens piger døde som lille.
