Owens-Thomas House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Owens-Thomas House

If you take a guided tour of this early-19th-century home, keep watch for its former occupants, who are said to still reside on the grounds. For example, an elderly woman in a big hat and a gray shawl strolling in the garden at dusk may not be a guest, but the ghost of last resident Margaret Thomas. You may also notice a man in 1830s garb who seems to walk through a wall into what was once a guest room. Those who work in the house have noted objects moving and things seeming to be rearranged, and witnesses swear that the eyes in the portraits follow you around the rooms.
