During the Civil War, a man who was in charge of hunting down deserters was killed on the front porch of the Deason Home and as he slowly expired his blood seeped into the wood flooring leaving a stain that could never be washed away. The floor was finally replaced, however it is claimed that his ghost remains.
Although the Deason Home is available for tours, it is a private home and you should call before going to view it.
