Date: 12/2003
Location: The Art Gallery, New Orleans Square, Disneyland
Comments: This was an early concept sketch for the Haunted Mansion. As the legend goes, in England one of the best and first haunting happened. The so called Phantom Drummer of Tedworth. It took place in the house of John Mompesson in March 1661. The whole family was kept awake by a loud drumming noise. They had been involved in the arrest of William Drury, who had attracted attention by playing a drum in the street. The spirit also slammed doors, panted like a dog, make scratching sounds like a rat, and also shouted A witch! A witch!
