This house is on the Halloween tour as a haunted house in Ellisville, Mississippi. It is a historical house that is being preserved...one of the oldest in the area. During the Civil War, Newt Knight went AWOL from his unit and with other men lived in the swamps in the area. An officer was sent to capture this group of renegades, and he spent the night at the Deason house. Knight went there during the night and shot the officer when he opened the door. The officer's blood is still on the wood of the porch and will not clean up. The doors opens sometimes by itself, and chairs have been reported to move by themselves. I'm sure there are other mysterious happenings in the house that I do not know about. Hopefully, you will research this and add it to your list to visit.
