The 1864 Crayhay Mansion is said to have many ghosts in residence, including a phantom yellow-and-white cat. Some of the human ghosts believed to haunt the mansion are Max McCray, who committed suicide in the barn; pregnant neighbor girl Rose, who fell out her third-floor window while trying to elope with the baby’s father; an elderly woman murdered in a robbery; and a young boy who died in the house. Most of the hauntings are said to occur on the third floor.
