STATUS: Burned down
The house served as the hideout for John Murrell and his outlaw gang (hence the name ‘Murrell’s Hideout’), and they often met up there to discuss things. One night, an argument about money erupted and it resulted in the killing of one of the gang members. Oddly, the blood stains refused to be washed away when the rest of the gang tried to cover up the evidence. A later resident of the house, Mrs. W. C. Ransom, covered them up by applying wall paper. In 1968, the house was struck by lighting, caught fire, and burned to the ground. The killed outlaw is still said to haunt the area, even though the house was destroyed.
