Thomas Jefferson is among the ghosts said to haunt here; at least seven spirits are reported. Some manifest as apparitions, some ectoplasm, and some as poltergeist pranks. U.S. Founding Father Jefferson, witnesses say, likes to appear in the dining room, near a tall clock. There is also a cursed chair at this site; those who sit in it are said to die shortly thereafter.

  1. I was at the place and I was walking around and I saw figures by the really long clock. I had saw 3 half humans. I ran to my mother and told her what happened. She didn’t believe me but, every time I would look over their I would see them talking every half an hour.I would also hear sounds coming from up stares. Like foot steeps. This places in haunted I wish anyone how goes there good luck.

  2. My father was great friends with Meade and I spent much of my childhood in this house. Definitely haunted. But they are all haemless
