This three-story brick residence dates back to the early 1800s and was built by Williams B. Phillips. The building's nickname came about after Phillips disappeared when only the frame of the structure had been built, making others believe he ran out of money to finish the place. Phillips came back years later and finished building the home, and became the town mayor in 1833. In the basement of the home was a jail cell, in which many drunks and runaway slaves were imprisoned. A later owner of the home, John Armstrong, died in the house in 1851, and his apparition has been spotted with his ghostly dog on the upstairs front porch. Another former resident, John Pearce, has also been seen here as a ghost, he was said to either have committed suicide in the back parlor or died fighting a duel. Reports say the eerie sounds of a duel have been heard in the house.
