in 1877 at the age of 48. Both he and his wife Nancy Opie Ball Bates, who died in 1877 along with two of their four children are buried in the family cemetery on
the grounds behind the mansion. Objects are reported to disappear and later be found at odd locations. I asked the mansion historian about the hauntings, he told me two of the employees have seen the former Governor upstairs, one of whom will not go inside after dark. The former Governor has been seen in a long black coat through the upper floor windows. While nothing paranormal occurred on my trip to this site, I shot these photos of the mansion and graveyard during a special October tour that are interesting. Stories from visitors to this site.
