SABIC Innovative Plastics, formerly GE Plastics, stands on what was once the Becker farm. The old farmhouse still stands, and was for a time used for offices. According to legend, Mr. Becker caught his wife having an affair with a slave there, so he pushed the slave down the stairs, killing him. He then killed his wife by trying to decapitate her, and afterward, hanged himself in the basement. Witnesses here say their ghosts may linger on the premises. The lights in the basement will turn on and off by themselves, and motion detectors will go off in a pattern as if someone is walking through the house, when there is no one there. A phantom perfume smell appears on the second floor near where the wife was killed.
