Henning-Miller House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Henning-Miller House

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.

  1. This house has much more than this one story. As a child… 20-25 years ago, I had a friend who lived in this house. I lived within walking distance and would frequently sleep over. There was never any sleeping done though. The feelings I had from this house still cause anxiety to this day… Even more recently as it has randomly been on my mind. Always had that feeling of something being wrong in the air there… A feeling of dread that comes about even just thinking about it.
