    1. This place is very haunted. We heard boot steps coming down to the basement where we were so we paused & when we looked behind us there was a shadowy figure sitting in the back row of chairs. Also I felt my hair being twirled then my hair was lifted (the tour guide witnessed this). I all the sudden felt like i had no energy & had to go outside because I felt sick.

    2. Picture taken in the McFarlane room, 2010. We did not see the figure in the mirror until I uploaded the pics onto our PC. We did have K2 meter “hits” in the center of the bed.

    3. I stayed in the Sara Black room and while I was alone in the hallway of the home, I smelled whiskey breath like someone was breathing in my face. This happened again later in the day while sitting at the bathroom vanity in my room. I’ve also stayed in the Jennie Wade room and have orbs in every picture. In one, my baseball cap on the bedside table is glowing like a white light was surrounding it. There was also a loud banging noise in the corner during the night when no one was there. Sitting in the tavern with my daughter, she got a notification on her phone that she had just missed a call from me, right after I took a picture of her and put my phone away.

    4. I don’t believe in ghosts but I cant explain what we saw here. We stayed in the Jenny Wade room. My wife was in the bathroom and I was lying on the bed when a coat hanger came flying out of the closet and landed about 6 feet away. No one was near the closet and I can’t think of any way this would have happened by itself

    5. Hello,
      I am a resident grew up here, my childhood bestfriend grandfather owns this building and I spent some time there you can feel it when walking the halls, there is a soldier who will walk behind woman, you have an uneasy feeling at times, and one time we were playing in the dining area when my friend little brother locked me in near the cellar door and stairs as I was freaking out for him to open the door all of a sudden the caller door slams shut…. this door is heavy you really have to pull in order to shut it was also just me locked on that side.
