The Cawood Family Once Lived Here

Thanks to some emails from people out there who read this blog, I have been told that my Cinderella Castle is actually Cawood House. A few weeks ago while I was out at Riverview Cemetery, I was taking pics of the memorials in the back (the big ones) and took one for the Cawoods because it was a Exedra, which is shaped like a curved or rectangular bench (like this one). It ended being used in burial grounds during Greek times because they would have more than one funeral for a loved one over the years. The seats would be used to sit on. Tables were also used for tomb stones to place food and wine on during these family gatherings.

I had no idea that I may have been taking a picture of the family burial site that once lived in my favorite East Liverpool home. This home was sold in the 60's to a Doctor, possibly named Dr. Samuelson. Some one else wrote that there is a mysterious red room somewhere in the home but they do not know what it was actually used for.
I will be meeting again soon with Joan and plan on asking her what she knows about this beautiful estate.

Is the house haunted? If so what has happened at the house?
