Cassius Clay’s historic home, built in 1798 by his father, is said to be haunted by Clay himself, his wife, and his son. Witnesses to the hauntings have described moving candle lights, footsteps and other unexplained sounds and even smells, and violin and piano music. Apparitions of the three ghosts have been seen as well. The state historic site is open for tours at some times during the year.

Mr. Clay would not go back to his childhood home
Mr clay was standing there with a axe in wood and he was standing and looking at me
went there. didn’t see of feel anything. a bunch of crap.
My wife and I went there,didn’t hear or see anything. Perhaps the ghost were on vacation.I can’t say that it isn’t haunted,it does have the look of being haunted.
There was a dog running around there and a small child running in circles. I havent checked all my recordings though.
