Legend says the owner of this mansion went crazy after slavery was abolished. In his rage, he killed all of his slaves and their children. Stories say he even killed his own family while he was at it, before killing himself. Witnesses say that there is an unexplained light that comes on in the bell tower and they have heard the rininging of a nonexistent bell. Orbs and apparitions have also been seen, some through the windows. Also reported at the mansion are eerie sounds and feelings.

  • Touched...by.... something

    I took a tour in 2010 and stood in the kitchen in a corner alone and felt like someone or something grabbed me on the side of my stomach.... i let one of the owners know while on the way to another spot in the house and he was interested... i also tried to record using a brand new knock off go pro camera but itd freeze every 2 seconds n could not save any footage i also had to take out the battery n put it back in for it to work again.

  • I’ve been here

    Let’s just day I heard many voices. Many angry souls and crying souls. It’s terrifying! I don’t recommend going late at night.

  • The Wild Mansion is haunted.

    Whoever wrote this made up the story. There is no bell tower. It is a cupola so the owner could view his property. A young daughter was driving her pony cart around the house. It flipped over and killed her.

  • Slaves

    Fyi.. Slave part is a farse.. Slavery was abolished in the state of Indiana by state constitution by 1820.. Meaning it would have been illegal. Js
