This is a circa 1960s photo of the Seltzer mansion, located at 55 King Ave.

It was owned by Theodore Seltzer, president and founder of Bengue Inc, which made Ben-Gay ointment. Seltzer earned $295,613 in 1947, one of the top salaries in business at the time. After he died in the 1950s, locals called it the haunted house. It was razed and there are 3 modern homes in its place.
