Ive investigated this place twice and Im going back there later this year to investigate it more. I have captured ghost talking to us and answering quistions and have captured a photo of a little girl with a woman and man standing behind her. This place is very haunted. I dont feel there is anything negative there. though I do have some male voices we captured telling us to go away or leave. But the female spirits have been friendly and answered our questions. Feel free to check out my web page. with the photos and a evp of a female answering my qustion. http://www.ipaawards.org/profile/Mike Because of the photo i took at Octagon Hall I was nominated this year by the International Paranormal Awards for National Paranormal Male investigator and for my spirit photography. THANKS-MIKE TNSPIRITS WEST CHAPTER

I have been to the Octagon Hall House several times, each time is always a new experiance for me and my family. Last year Aug of 08 , my family was there in the early evening and I was looking in at the very first stall there by the carriage  stalle, I kept hearing rocks being thrown , I could not see the m but I heard them being thrown , I asked who was throwing the rocks and they all told me that no one was throwing rocks. I asked them all to come over to where Iwas to see if they could hear what Iwas hearing . S ure enough the sounds of rocks were being thrown again , this time they all heard it. It was great., we have also smelled cigar smoke on the front porch that faces the road,along with a dirty musty smell of old clothing. , I have also heard a little girl giggleing , I think that was Mary E lizabeth, a sweet little girl who died there in the house way to young.

I was taking pictures of the stairs as my husband was walking down , because they have said that a lady stands at the bottom of the steps, when I toof the pictures  you dont see any thing untill you get them developed, so after the pic,were done we all looked @ them and there are orbs in the pictures around my husband, I also took photos of some of the tombstones, and I ended up with a mans face and a horses head on the stone , the man  seems to be a sol, with his horse that was really cool . I will be giving the co founders this photo for all to see. This is a amazing place to visit , Igo there  1-2 times a year , I can never get enough of this place. yes the Octagon is haunted trust me , nothing bad , but Mary Elizabeths room always feels kinda un easy for me , her nursery is right next to the sick room, poor  baby.

My family and I went on a trip to the house today. What we discovered when we got home and watched our recording was a little girl standing beside my brother. Also we discovered a womans face watching us. We experienced interaction with someone in the slave house. When we asked aloud if whoever was in the room wanted us to leave the place we got a responce of a door squeeking and so we all exited the room. We had a very nice time there and are going to go back sometime soon.

i went there about five years ago october 22.... it was my brothers birthday and we went with my grandmothers friend it was pretty crazy there is no doubt that there is really something in there. some things i might of thought was phony but there are things that happen in there that you cant possible set up... one lady had to leave beacuse the spirits were attacking her.. even outside in the fake haunted house you still felt that unwanted present... i think it was from the grave yard.... who knows many people died in that house just think woulndt you come back for revenge to??  espically mary elizabeth the lil girl.. its reallly funny bc thats my grandmas name and we all looked at her when the name was said.. they had a movie made there i was suppose to help but my parents didnt want any real danger brought to me..

I spent the night in the Octagon House several times as a child when it was privately owned, and although it was 'cold and creepy' I never felt it to be haunted, and I am usually very sensitive/open  to those types of things.
