Franklin, Kentucky 42134


Built by Andrew Jackson Caldwell in 1859 sat on over 40 acres. This antebellum landmark was originally designed as a masonic temple, featuring a unique eight sided layout coupled with upside down crosses on interior doors. Ancient ancestors believed this shape could be used to trap spirits inside .

This property has a dark history riddled with death, sickness, and tragedy. Serving as a temporary fort and a hospital in 1862. Thousands of souls fought and died in and around octagon hall. There are thought to be over 100 paranormal entitys still walking the property. From the 20+ slaves and family members who died and are buried on the property. To the solders who passed away inside the house. Its not hard to see why this is considered to be one of the most haunted locations in the Southeastern United States.

The beautiful grounds feature the old summer kitchen, multiple burial sites, underground tunnels, and two barns from the original farm. But inside is where things go bump in the night Operating as a functioning museum, the interior is filled with objects of the by gone era. Photos and heirlooms of the day fill every crevice, its almost as if the house itself is alive with memories from times past. Wounded soldiers laying the the old hospital room, secret passages for confederate soldiers to hide for days to avoid death. The gals room– where unspeakable acts were carried out from the union soldiers violent attacks. Also including the winter kitchen where a 12 year old little girl was burned alive.
