As I drove along Birch Road the other day, working on the ghost story I had heard about, I saw this house and literally had to slam on my brakes and take a picture of it. It is obviously an old house. Some of the windows even look original. It seemed to just jump out at me. I took this picture and added it to our facebook group page. We are having a contest on who can find the scariest house in Columbiana County.
A comment (thanks Wendy!) was made about the house being haunted.
"This house is very haunted! A friend of mine use to live in it & we heard it was involved in the Underground Railroad to get slaves from the river out into the country to escape to Canada. I use to get cold goosebups there all the time & I could hear little kids playing in the yard at all hours of the night."
Underground Railroad stories always have my attention! There is a bend in the road right by this house that is flanked by an open field. I wondered if this was where the stagecoach accident might have occured. Coupled with a historic and possibly haunted house, this area has interesting investigative possibilities!
