The Ghost of Jeremiah Clemens
According to the ghost tour, his law office building on Pratt Avenue is haunted by the ghost of Jeremiah Clemens. Jeremiah was a Senator and a novelist. Politically, he was most know as a Unionist who did not support the civil war and was against secession from the Union. Nationally Clemens was most known as a novelist and author of the books Bernard Lile (1856) and Mustang Grey (1858). Clemens resided in the house on Pratt Avenue during his life in Huntsville, Alabama.
Apparently, a psychic has been through this haunted law firm and she concluded that Mr. Clemens was a bit of a Lady's man. He liked looking at the pretty ladies. She said that he spent most of his haunting time enjoying the pretty women at the firm and would probably have little to do with the men. This didn't surprise my friend, because he said he's never felt anything resembling a haunting at his office. However, many of the female employees have reported feeling a presence in the building. They describe feeling as if they are being watched. I suppose there are worse things for a ghost to do, but I still don't think I'd want the man above ogling me while I worked. The women at that office are stronger than me, I think I might change jobs.
