Constructed around 1845, it is only natural that this old historic home be connected to the distant past with recorded truths, legends and tales of its occupants and their lives.  A mystery  of murder, blood stains, buried gold, secret passages, deaths, funerals, squeaking hinges, empty chairs rocking and yes GHOSTS! remain a part of the Deason Home legacy.  

The story of CSA Soldier Major Amos McLemore's assassination in the Deason Home is a famous Southern Ghost Story which has been published in several books, writings and various newspaper articles.  McLemore's haunting has reportedly been associated with this house since his untimely death in 1863 and has been speculated on by local residents for years.
