John Morgan Hunt House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  John Morgan Hunt House

This 1814 house was built by John Wesley Hunt, who can still be seen walking the hallways of this old property. The apparition of Mammy Bouviette James, a former nurse of the Hunt children, can still be seen in the third floor nursery and hallways, and often appears to those who are ill.
