In 1860 Charles Richards, his wife, Caroline Elizabeth Steele,
and their twelve children, (though a few did not make it past childhood) moved into this
Ante-Bellum Mansion. In their seventh year Caroline died in childbirth.The home remained in
the family for a few generations then passed into the hands of the owners of a cement company.
When the building outlived its usage as an office, it was turned over to the city.
Paranormal activity noticed – Quickly, the DAR members became aware of the spirits in residence. There are times when you hear—when you first go in, after opening up—you’ll hear young children. It sounds like children playing on the stairs or right at the top of the stairs.
It is now a museum.
