In 1874, a tornado took the life of lady of the house Judith Winston, who was crushed beneath rubble. Her sons pulled her from the wreckage, but she died in the front bedroom on the eastern side. Since 1982, the 1824 house has been a museum and event space. Mrs. Winston is said to once have rattled the chairs that were being set up for a wedding until the bride called out an invitation to her. Mrs. Winston is also said to make the walls “weep” in the entry hall when a storm is near. Other stories say original builder William Winston’s spirit has been seen at the top of the stairs and walking through the halls, and white figures have been seen through windows after the house is closed for the night.
