Built in 1754, this home was used as a Civil War makeshift hospital after a deadly battle nearby. Witnesses have heard phantom screams, cries, and prayers, or the sounds of soldiers begging for help. In the basement, where slaves once were kept and abused, folks have reported cold spots, taps on the shoulder, and the feeling of being watched. Apparitions of soldiers also have been seen throughout the house and grounds.

  1. i went with friends just to have fun and see how it was, When we walked in i felt like I was being watched, a flow of anxiety started to hit me, as we walked in the door closed behind us causing me to jump, we walk upstairs and I swear I saw or heard someone in there. We looked out the window and we headed to the basement, and oh my god, i felt very uneasy and a presence, it was dark and I felt it was cold when it was 80 degrees out, we left but I ended up cutting my hand and my friend stepped in bush with thorns and I don’t wanna go back, But I do at the same time. We shall see.
