House on B.I.S. Rd
In 1899, a sixteen year old maid named Gail Parish and her father came from nearby Athens County to work for the family of the mansion. Her father, a blacksmith, hired a young man named Johnny Kelly to assist him in the smithy. Gail and Johnny soon became lovers, and when her father and the owners of the mansion found out, they forbade to two ever to see each other again. Jilted, Johnny broke into Gail’s room one night and slit her throat with a shaving knife. In her blood on the stairwell he wrote “If I cannot have you, no one can.” It is said that if one uses a Ouija board to conjure the spirit of Gail, her calico dress will appear in the closet.
