Spring Villa in lee County had a long history of paranormal legends, so we contacted the historical society because of our interest in history. They invited us to come investigate.
People at the location have reported unusual phenomena, such as seeing a little girl, seeing a man in the window of the upstairs of the new building next to Spring Villa, being touched by an unseen entity, hearing footsteps, voices, seeing shadows and experiencing cold spots. A previous investigator recorded an EVP in the master bedroom. Its history includes the legend of the owner's murder and beheading by a servant.
The home originally was used by Penn & Mary Yonge. It was built by Horace King, a freed part African/part Catawba Indian slave who once belonged to John Godwin, Mary Godwin Yonge’s father. Mr. King was one of the most famous bridge builders in the South.
