Long Description:
From Haunted Places (visit link)

"The 1845 plantation-style mansion was formerly owned by surveyor general Thomas Jefferson Chambers, who was shot dead through a ground floor window in 1863. Local folk say that a shadow has been seen pacing the downstairs room where he was assassinated, and screams have been heard coming from the second floor on quiet nights. Legend has it that the bullet that killed him passed straight through him and struck a portrait on the wall behind him, hitting it in exactly the same spot that he himself was struck."

"We investigated all 3 locations at the same time. We broke the team into 3 separate teams and took on the task. We experienced most of the activity in the library. We could "hear" soft whispers, conversations, footsteps and seen unexplained shadows and anomalies on the video footage. The reports of paranormal activity were verified by both personal experience and through the investigation."
