During the 90's I think it was (I have been more than once), I and my wife visited Andrew Jackson's Nashville, TN home The Hermitage. Andrew Jackson, if he doesn't immediately ring a bell, is the 7th President of the United States and is featured on the $20 bill. The President and his family are laid to rest only steps from the home.
During this particular visit, the tour guide took us through the various rooms of the home. It was in the Dining Room that an odd thing happened. A piece of the fireplace log cradle, that holds wood that burns in the fireplace, fell over. I commented something to the effect," How did that happen?" and stated matter of factly,"This place must be haunted." The guide said not one word but her facial expression said everything. She looked very flushed and even afraid.
The fireplace was NOT lit and there was NO wind. Even if there had been wind those are forged of very HEAVY Iron and it would likely take a very strong gust of wind, almost a tornado, to move them as I would guess they are most likely original and therefore probably made in the 1800's. Others might say well the floor jarred as you walked by. They evidently don't know about how fireplaces were constructed during the 1800's. They were built to the ground through the basement or crawl space of stone or brick.
I have read elsewhere that others have experienced activity at the home. I had even read stories, related by others, that some employees have experienced things themselves. There are reports of at least one employee, that I think it was said, she would not be in the mansion after dark, nor be alone in the house as well.
If you have a chance to visit, ask the Park Service guides if they know of reports. I bet you will be surprised.
I have noticed before that I am "sensitive" to occurrences and I can relate other happenings in future posts as well. If you have experienced anything at the Hermitage itself or have another similar experience, please share your experience.
