Built in 1754, this home was used as a Civil War makeshift hospital after a deadly battle nearby. Witnesses have heard phantom screams, cries, and prayers, or the sounds of soldiers begging for help. In the basement, where slaves once were kept and abused, folks have reported cold spots, taps on the shoulder, and the feeling of being watched. Apparitions of soldiers also have been seen throughout the house and grounds.
