I don't know why it is that so many people think that a large house has a ghost in it. But almost everyone thinks that if you go into a mansion of some sort or a large home, that you're going to have a ghost. Is there any ghost story that you might know?
And so, I was taking them around and I was going to point out again the painting of Mrs. Otis. I said, "This is our ghost from Reynolda House."
I had a group of students several years ago that came through and I had told them that they would see a ghost in the House.
And this one little girl: very, very determined not to go into the room and she said, "I'm not going in there."
I said, "Well, why?"
And she said, "Because there's a ghost in there and I don't want to come into contact with a ghost!"
I thought that was an interesting little tidbit.
