This location dates back to 1720 and was home to six generations of Bentons. Daniel Benton built the home and his grandson Elisha is rumored to be one of the possible hauntings here. Elisha was captured while fighting the British in the Revolutionary War and ended up catching smallpox on the prison ship. When he made it home, his true love Jemima Barrows, who was 12 years younger, took care of him. Both ended up dying from smallpox and the family agreed to bury the two near each other. But because they were not married, they had to be buried on opposite sides of the carriage path. Reports of ghostly figures moving about have been noted and a girl has been heard crying. The apparition of a solider has also been seen, as well as that of a young woman wearing a wedding gown. Knockings and vibrations have also been reported here.
