Four generations of the Oliver Reed family have lived in his home, which has been explored by TV's Ghost Hunters. It dates back to 1809 and contains murals believed to have been created by Rufus Porter, painter, inventor and founder of The Scientific American Magazine, a Victorian garden and examples of early country clothing. The ghost that is said to haunt the home is that of Hannah Reed, who hanged herself in the hall after her child died. Witnesses say they have seen her apparition and a door that leapt off its hinges.
