This private home is said to be occupied by a couple of soldier ghosts, Confederate deserters in stolen Union uniforms. In life, these men were caught and, to avoid punishment, committed suicide in the house by shooting each other. Their apparitions have been seen holding whiskey bottles and singing “John Brown’s Body.” Drunken laughter and soldiers’ marching footsteps have been heard as well.
