Actress Vanessa Williams is convinced her New York home is haunted after experiencing a series of ghostly happenings.

The Desperate Housewives beauty, who stars in spooky new U.S. Tv drama 666 Park Avenue, lives with her four children in Westchester County and the 49 year old is certain the family house, which was built well before World War I, has a scary, storied past.

She tells Us Weekly, "My house was built in 1905, so there are lots of unexplained sounds and lights that go on and off. I'm sure there's some history I don't know about."
