I haven’t had the opportunity to investigate all the stories on this old mansion, recently bought by the City of Ozark. It was built in 1912 by the Holman Family and is probably 8,000 square feet two-story structure with full basement, located on Broad Street in Ozark. We have heard stories, but don’t have specifics. I do know that one of the grandsons of the family was roughly jerked from his bed by one of the maids and rushed down stairs and out into the rain one early may morning over 80 years ago. She told the family if the baby received the first May rain he would live a long and healthy life. The man told me the story himself, is still in good health, and well into his 80’s today. At a recent reception, I was told that lots of unusual incidents, noises, creaking, and such happened when the workers doing the restoration have been on the premises; however, nothing that can compare to the attached photo of the apparition of a little boy in early 1900’s dress that appears at the top of the stairs……..there are many stories within those walls!
