This 1752 mansion is haunted by the husband of George Washington’s sister, Betty. Colonel Fielding Lewis, who died in the 1780s, spent many an hour in the upstairs bedroom worrying about money. His ghost can be seen in Revolutionary-era attire poring over his documents. His footsteps have been heard as well, and dorrknobs mysteriously turn by themselves.
