This was a very nice home with lots of history and it was very interesting to hear its history as well as it's haunted stories. The Whittingtons were great people.

We've been to a few "haunted" places. I'd have to say this was the least interesting one I've been through. The owner is very knowledgeable of the history of the house, but not so much as to why it's haunted. He was very enthusiastic with...More

We had an excellent tour of the old beautiful home. The owner lead the tour and was extremely knowledgeable about the property. We think we captured an apparition near the corner of the house!! A must see attraction in Jefferson!

Our host/tour guide, who lives in the house, was very engaging and extremely entertaining. He is an excellent storyteller and did a great job of painting the picture of life in the 1800's. Very good value for only $6.00!

We recommend the tour for ages 10 and above, not because of the ghost stories, but because of the history. Adults LOVE the history of the house, which include a few love stories, but kids can get bored and restless during... More
