The Many Ghosts of Sweetwater Mansion
The group is now working on a book to document the ghost stories of Sweetwater and I can't wait to read them. I know I barely touched the surface with my book. Being in the mansion, I can say that there is a tangible presence in the mansion. There is a heaviness in the air and stepping from the outside into the mansion the temperature drops over 10 degrees. I shivered and I'm always hot. The old house is not what it used to be, but its beauty remains. Bits of wallpaper and old rooms whisper of days gone by when it was the most extravagant home in the South. Old pictures, faded by time, show what once was. The house feels trapped in time, perhaps it is held there by its ghosts.
