The Mudhouse Mansion in Lancaster, Ohio Facts and Legends
#1
The Mudhouse Mansion is a amazing, fascinating abandoned house. It was built into a hill, with a few other old buildings surrounding it.
The house was built in the early 1800's.
Many stories are told of the frightening gory past of the Mudhouse. This one was back in the later 1860's after the Civil War.
************************************************

The govt. official that built the house that lived in the Mudhouse up until the 1860's after the Civil War still kept slaves. Even though it was illegal. He was known to be very cruel to his slaves and locked them up in the outbuildings every night. One male slave, who was tired and angry of the treatment, dug his way out of the outbuilding, entered the house, and murdered his masters intire family. In the morning, locals discovered the murdered family, but by then all the slaves had escaped. No one was ever charged of the crime. They say the family and the slaves still haunt the abandoned building today.
This was were the hauntings picked up. The house was vacant for years, and neighbors started hearing strange groans, and shrieks coming from the empty mantion.
Many years later, it was said in 1892 a man moved into the Mudhouse with his wife and his 3 children. Neighbors saw them move in, unloading there belongings and bringing them into the house.
And then...there was nothing. Nobody saw them again. They never seemed to leave the house, yet they were gone.
A neighbor who could see the house from her bedroom window, later told locals that she could see a figure of a woman, all dressed in white, standing looking out the second story window. The neighbor said the figure was not doing anything, just standing looking out the window at her. Each day for 10 days straight, the woman saw the woman in the window again! Standing in the same position!
One the 10th day the woman called the police to investigate.
When the police broke into the house and got to the second floor, they were greeted by a terrible sight.
All of the 5 family members were hanging lifeless from the ceiling. They were all dressed in white gowns and it appeared they had taken there own life. The figure in the window they had seen was a woman. The mother of the family. She had been handing from the ceiling in front of the window...for 10 whole days.
After that nobody lived in the house and it remained vacant to this day. People still try to come see the abandoned house, but the current owner is very strict about anyone entering the property. Frown

*****************************************
The last story about the 5 family members hanging from the ceiling I don't know for sure is true. It is considered a legend, but who knows, there already was a real murder in the house before. So who knows if the stories a fake.Icontexto-emoticons-03-032x032Icontexto-emoticons-04-032x032Frown
The thing that ruins this awesome house for a wonderful adventure is the current owner. FrownThe driveway is heavily gated and there are warning signs everywhere from the Sheriffs Department. There used to be able to park behind a abandoned white house next to the driveway, but it burned down. You will have to be more creative to find a place to park were nobody will see you. Frown
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS HOUSE IS PRIVATE PROPERTY. YOU SHOULD TRY TO GET PERMISSION BEFORE ENTERING. THE CURRENT OWNER CAN BE VERY UNKIND TO TRESPASSERS AND YOU COULD FACE FINES OR JAIL TIME. THE OWNER HAS BEEN KNOWN TO PRESS CHARGES! BlueohIcontexto-emoticons-10-032x032
If you leave your car anywhere, you will probably regret it.

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

I like the Wickerham Inn, near west Union, in Adams County, and its headless ghost. Suposedly witnessed by hundreds, the ghost is from a murdered man whose body was discovered under the floorboards on the second floor during restorations in 1922.
