This house is said to have belonged to a doctor during the antebellum period. A conductor on the Underground Railroad, the doctor helped many slaves escape to freedom. One slave died on the way to Canada. This slave had wanted to earn money to go back and buy the freedom of his girlfriend, Nelly Gray. In response to the tragedy, the doctor’s son wrote the Civil War song, which became very popular in the North, “Darling Nelly Gray.” Since that time, the house has been haunted by an unknown ghost. It is so plagued by the apparition, that the deed of the house notes that it is haunted.
