Built around 1760, some say this house has a ghost on its staircase. Rumor has it that when the British took over the home during the American Revolution, one of the officers fell down the stairs when he heard the daughter mention that Patriot hero Francis “Swamp Fox” Marion was in town. The British officer broke his neck and died instantly. Now, whenever anyone loses his footing on the stairway, they can feel a disembodied hand steadying them. It is said to be the ghostly British officer protecting them from suffering the same fate that he did.
