Octagon Hall - Real Franklin Haunt
This historic hall was completed in 1859 and is believed to be haunted by a young ghostly girl who was said to have burned to death in the basement kitchen in the 1860s. Local stories say that during a ghost tour in 2003, the fireplace kettle swung out into the room on its own (note: it is too heavy to be easily moved and hangs from a moveable arm.) Footsteps and have also been heard, along with doors that open and close on their own during the night. Other reports here include the mysterious scent of flowers in the parlor which quickly turns to decayed meat. Ghost investigators have explored the location and have collected several examples of EVPs.
