HISTORY:

The Shirley Place is a raised cottage built by James Shirley in 1838. The house is built of handmade brick, including the interior walls. The original floor plan was designed as four-over-four (four rooms on both the upper and lower floors). Each room had its own fireplace served by four exterior chimneys. Five of these fireplaces are still usable. The house is furnished with period furniture primarily of American Empire style (circa 1850). The current resident of the house is Mr. Marvin Harper, a descendant of the Shirley Family.

 

SUMMARY:

Reported paranormal activity revolves primarily around a 19th Century schoolmaster’s desk in the downstairs den. The pine and tulip wood desk was used in the mid-1850’s and came from a Mississippi Plantation. Additionally, an apparition attributed to Mrs. Elizabeth Shirley has been witnessed and heard in the house.
