This location is rumored to be haunted by "The Lady of the Stairs," a female apparition that appears on the church steps, pacing and weeping. Locals call her Ms. G, as she is thought to belong to the Gathrights, a well-known local family of the early 1900s. Stories say she fell in love with a soldier, but her father did not approve of their relationship. Hebert Fullerton Dickson was believed to be the soldier, and when he was able to get away, he met her on the church steps in secret and planned their elopement. The soldier never made it to their elopement, and died of pneumonia. His bride to be was left on the church steps, pacing back and forth. When she went home, she was said to be so cold that she caught the flu, and died shortly thereafter.
