The Peglegged Ghost of Holman House

Thought to have been built between 1798 and 1810 by then Secretary of State William White, the mansion known now as Holman house located at 209 East Morgan Street in Raleigh, North Carolina was a fine example of architecture of the time. Over the years the house was modified and enlarged to suit the needs of those who lived in the house. One thing was never changed. The back staircase where the ghost of Holman house still makes its nightly walks.

No one knows who or what the ghost is. In fact, no one has ever seen it. All that has been reported is the sound of one foot and the hollow clap of a wooden leg against the back stairs as it makes its way up and down the stairs. Those new to the house are terrified when they first hear the sound of pegged-leg making its way up and down the stairs. Those who are familiar with the spirit are not bothered by it for it is confind to the back stairs and has done nothing to hurt anyone.

I didn't think anything of it and used the bathroom an...
