Duff Green Mansion

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Duff Green Mansion

Duff Green Mansion served as a hospital during the Civil War and it still bears some of the scars despite restoration. Bloodstains are still in the original flooring and one of the ceiling beams shows where a cannonball struck the mansion before its occupants surrendered and turned it into a hospital. There are reportedly numerous ghosts who haunt Duff Green, from the original mistress, to soldiers who lost life and limb within its walls. An often reported sighting is of a Confederate soldier, missing a leg, sitting in front of the fireplace.

    1. my best friend and i went with our parents to a meeting for something at Duff Green Manor and we had an encounter of a young girl saying ,”Hey! Hey you!” we were very scared, so told our parents. hey didn’t believe us, so we told a guy who worked there and he told us stories about a little girl back during the Civil War who “lived” there. To this day, I’m still investigating online if anyone else had an encounter like that.

    2. Yes. What a place. My sister and I stayed there a few years back. We requested the room that did not have “stories”. It was the room across from the leg less soldier. There were twin beds and mine was closest to the hall way. At pre dawn there was a loud metal ratchet type rattling noise right next to my head. I immediately woke up but was too scared to frightened to open my eyes. I eventually went back to sleep. At daylight I saw my sister get up and head towards the bathroom. I asked “did you hear that ?”, and YES was the answer. All of Vicksberg is haunted. We toured the Mcraven (sp?) house and I would highly recommend this house tour in particular. The occurances are taken for granted by people who work in both places as they acknowledge the events as usual and everyday.

    3. Of the three phone numbers on their site, two are non-working and one leads to a cemetery. I’d love to see it, but I’m not traveling there if I can’t even get someone on the phone 😉

    4. My husband and I stayed here last year and had a couple of experiences. I can’t speak for him, but while I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep, my pillow felt as though someone put their hand on it and pushed it down. It was awesome! The 1st day when we arrived, no one else had gotten there yet and while we were on the 2nd floor, looking around, we heard something up on the 3rd floor. We talked to a staff member who came in afterwards and she verified that no one else was there but us. My husband also says that he heard sounds in the hallway between the rooms that sounded like a child. There were no children there that weekend. All in all, a very awesome experience!! And the breakfast was delicious as well!! Just thought I would add that in!!
