The ghost is out of the bag

For nearly the past two years I’ve become obsessed with a local ghost story. Right up the hill from my little house sits the home of one of our town’s founding families. It’s now a museum called Eldon House, but was once the hub for the socialites of our town, including the British officers when they were garrisoned here in the 1840’s.

As a result of my obsession, my fiance and I have spent countless hours researching and investigating a ghost story connected to the home. The attached article is our first published work on the subject.

This story is far from over, stay tuned!
