The ghost of Colonel John Waller Hoomes, who built this house in 1670, haunts his old home, some say. His daughter Sophia has been witnessed around the property as well, usually riding in a coach to visit her father’s home. And one more ghost who resides here is a Mrs. Woodford, who died of a heart attack when her husband scared her by putting on a jack-o-lantern costume. It is said that you can still hear her screams coming out of the downstairs bedroom. Another interesting happening here: The sound of phantom hoofbeats is said to presage a catastrophic event. Other eerie things are said to occur here as well.
