This mansion built in 1818 by the Reverend Frederick A. Ross is said to be the home of a ghostly Lady in White. So the legend says, she is Ross’s daughter Rowena, and she is looking for her love who was drowned in nearby Holston River. It is said that after several more tragedies, the hopeless Rowena walked out into the river and drowned herself, and her spirit has lingered here ever since. Another ghost who is said to walk here is Joshua Phipps, the second owner of the house, known in life to be a cruel man. His evil laugh has been reported to ring throughout the mansion.
