This 1847 home belonged to cotton dealer Joe Thompson and his wife, Eliza. The couple had seven children, so when Joe was killed in 1855 when a horse kicked him, Eliza had her hands full. The home is now an inn, and folks who visit have seen a ghostly woman in white and a Confederate soldier’s apparition, and have heard children giggling. Room 132 is purported to be the most active with ghostly goings-on.
