History

Before the poor farm was built, there was a house on the same spot. During the Civil War, it was used as part as the Underground Railroad, and was later converted into a nursing home. However, the building burned to the ground. The nearby intersection was nicknamed the “Four Corners of the Spiritual World”, as there were four corners with four different locations that seemedto make up the setting of most of the town’s inhabitants’ lives.

On one corner, there was a carnival that would take place, which residents would visit before going to the church, located on another corner. When they got old, they would go to the poor farm, on a third corner, which was proceeded by the fourth and final corner – the cemetery.

One day, the owner of the house asked his neighbor to keep an eye  on it while he was gone – he never returned. Eventually, the house was sold, and the new owners made plans to renovate the place. While working on it, the construction crew was troubled by hauntings, and they were forced to walk out on the job. The owners then came to the decision to build a new house slightly behind the old location.

The poor farm is home to both benign and malevolent spirits; the most sighted evil spirit is a shadowy man who runs atop the building.  On some nights, apparitions of rooms that don’t exist anymore appear. The paranormal activity is heightened by the local witches who practice their craft nearby.
