Construction of the church was begun in 1859, but screeched to a halt when the lead architect Mr. Gunn slipped on the steep roof and fell to his death. Folks have seen Mr. Gunn’s ghost around the ruins of the church and tower and heard his scream, and locals say they’ve seen lights moving in the upper portion of the tower at night–although that bit of the tower is inaccessible. Some say a ghostly church choir can be heard on the grounds.
