Abijah Thomas House - Real Haunted Place
Built in 1856, this octagon-shaped 17-room house was once the center of a 400 acre plot of land owned by Abijah Thomas. Thomas was the proprietor of a textile plant and owned a number of slaves whom he kept at his private residence. Allegedly some of those slaves were horribly abused and now their ghosts haunt the old building, appearing to visitors in shackles, dripping blood. The storage room, commonly called “the dark room,” is said to be particularly active. The house was abandoned for many years, but has recently been purchased by a local resident who hopes to restore it fully.
