George Hightower is one of the former owners of the Haunted Mansion and the fifth husband turned victim of Constance Hatchaway.

Biography

In 1877, George Hightower met up with Constance Hatchaway in Pleasant Lake, California. George proposed to and married Constance, unaware that she was a notorious "black widow bride". Some time after the wedding, Constance brutally murdered George with a hatchet and inherited his fortune and (presumably) the Mansion, where she apparently met her end.

The ride

Though George Hightower doesn't physically appear in the ride itself, he makes two appearances: first as a bust on one of the stretching portraits, and then again in his wedding photo in the mansion's attic.

Trivia

  • George Hightower was portrayed in the wedding photo by Imagineer Rick Rothschild.
  • George is possibly related to Harrison Hightower III, the millionaire who built the Hotel Hightower and mysteriously vanished on December 31, 1899. Similarly, the hotel is now considered haunted, under the name of Tower of Terror.
