Brothers James and George Winchester built the first Cragfont, a log cabin, in 1785. George was killed by Indians in 1794, and James and his wife Susan went on to build the upscale manor house Cragfont, finished in 1802. The historic mansion has been restored and is open to the public. Caretakers there have seen apparitions and objects that had been moved, candles that lit by themselves, beds that had been disturbed and more after closing. Some of the phenomena have been caught in photos and on video. Country star Conway Twitty was a witness to the activity. He left the home after he said things were being thrown at him.
