Now, Grayson’s young brother Theo, inherited the old house and came to live in it with his wife and three-year-old son. Theo was a banker. He and his wife entertained a lot at the old house. He soon became the new Mayor of the city. He and his wife had two other children, daughters who lost their lives from drowning in the lake. Theo’s wife was so grief stricken by the loss of her girls that she plunged to her death from one of the turrets of the house.
After the loss of his daughters and wife, Theo and his son left the area and the house empty.
Theo’s son, Arthur returned with his wife to the old house, but they didn’t stay long. There were rumors that the place was haunted. They complained that the grand piano was playing at odd hours of the day and night. They heard footsteps running up and down the stairway . . . And they were sure they heard Arthur’s sisters whispering and laughing.
Decades later, one of Arthur’s children moved into the mansion. It was at a wedding that a fire took the lives of the bride and groom as well as several of the guests. The place was boarded up and abandoned.
The current owner, originally planned to renovate the old place for his daughter who died in an automobile accident. He was certain the place was cursed . . . or the family was . . . Regardless of that, it was definitely haunted . . . The construction crew reported tools being moved, hearing voices, laughter, footsteps . . . A few reported seeing whispy floating stuff . . . No one wanted to be there after dark, that was when several workers reported being touched and a few had been pushed.
