This is SO not true! Half of my family lived in Litchfield and not once have ANY of them heard of this place being in Kentucky. It is DEFINITELY in Massachusettes.

The house was actually located on Cowpen Rd in Pikeville, KY. The house has been torn down but the property where the house was located never blooms. The grass and trees are dead all year round.

I live in Grayson County Ky, and sorry to bust any bubbles but yes there is in face a 7 gables here it is located of Grayson springs rd. It is on privet property and fence in, maybe the reason not many have heard of it as far as it being torn down havent heard that, but it in fact is or was real. It is said that it was a military insane asylum during the civil war, but im not sure on the facts on that part. However the haunted part is true my niece went there and it like to scared here to death and she is not easily scared. if you are looking for a haunted place to visit Waverly hills in louisville is a great place to go just went there recently and it was great, truly haunted and interesting to say the least, you do have to pay but the 8 hour tour is worth it.
