Ghost hunters keep coming back again and again for Lawrence County’s most haunted place. Visitors report strange smells, apparition sightings, voices, footsteps, slamming doors and physical contact from spirits.

In 1899 (or 1901, depending on which source you reference), Dr John and Jessie Gibbons purchased the house from the original owners, Dr George and Sarah White. Dr John and Jessie Gibbons reportedly adopted abandoned/orphaned children. One of these children, a 10-year old girl named Rachael, started a fire in the front parlor, being badly burned, and died 2 days later in one of the upstairs bedrooms. But, you can still hear, and sometimes see, her running around the house today…
