This academy was originally built as a Methodist high school in 1840, and it was once used as a Civil War hospital. After that, it was a girls’ Catholic school until it became a bed-and-breakfast and antique store. The nuns who used to run the school here are said to haunt the place, and in fact are said to be buried in a cemetery on the grounds. Photographs taken here have picked up orbs, vertexes and strange mists, and some are said to be seen on the establishment’s web site.
