  1. Been at this house many times since i was a lil boy. Use to live around the corner from it. Ive even slept on the porches front and back and have yet to see any ghost.

    • You have to be a member of The Womans’ Club of Fayetteville. They meet there once a month or more. They do not allow ghost hunters or the curious to visit.

  2. I went there one year for Christmas (a couple of years ago). Never saw anything and went through a lot of the house. It was even later at night and I didn’t see anything. Beautiful house but I didn’t see anything strange there. Didn’t even know it was “supposedly” haunted until I ran across this page tonight. AWESOME place to visit at Christmas time though!

  3. My PI group performed two separate ghost tours to raise funds for the Women’s Club and we captured very much video and audio evidence of paranormal activity, had several personal experiences and interactions and one of our inspectors actually saw a female apparition which walked past him in the front hallway and disappeared up the staircase. So yes, it is definitely haunted!

  4. I am the founder and director for Paranormal Research and Observation Squad and we have a “tour”/investigation scheduled for this coming February 4th to also help them to raise money. My assistant director and I were in there one day acquiring the proper paperwork for this event when we both had a personal experience of hearing someone slide something across the counter in the kitchen and there was no one in there and no way for anyone to go in or out without us knowing. So, yes it is haunted.
