Deason Home

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.

    1. The Deason Home is one of the most under rated locations in Mississippi. In fact we live going so much the staff have become almost personal friends. Everytime we’ve been, we’ve caught some good stuff. We recently filmed a documentary of the place. You can check out our first investigation of the place on our website undor the investigations tab.

    2. I recently moved to Ellisville from northern Ohio. I have a YouTube channel where I read fictional horror stories, but I’m making a transition to non-fiction horror. I started a group on Facebook called Jones County Paranormal Society, and I’m looking for different places around the area to do research as well as catalogue other people’s personal experiences with the paranormal. Being that I live in Ellisville, I’ve been thinking about checking out the Deason home. If anyone can contact me regarding information about the Deason home, or if you or anyone you know had had a personal paranormal experience that they would like to be featured on my channel, I’d be extremely grateful.
