When President Lincoln was shot, one of his guests at the theater was Sen. Ira Harris’s daughter Clara. After the event, Clara’s white dress was stained by Lincoln’s blood, so upon returning home to this cottage, she had a special closet built for it, then had it sealed up. After that, she saw an apparition of Lincoln in her room, and in later years others have met up with the former president’s ghost in the house as well.
