John and Debbie interview Barry Gaunt volunteer tour guide at Octagon Hall Museum in Franklin, Kentucky. Barry shares with us the history of the Octagon Hall and his paranormal experiences there.
A little history: This antebellum, eight-sided, three story brick home, one of only four brick eight-sided homes remaining in this country, began construction in 1847 and was completed in 1859. It was built as the residence of Andrew Jackson Caldwell and his family. As the Civil War spread throughout the new nation, Caldwell a slaveholder, whose brother was a colonel in the rebel army, threw his support firmly behind the Confederacy. It was known that any Confederate soldier who could make it to the Caldwell’s’ farm would receive shelter and medical care and be hidden from the Union forces that were often following in hot pursuit. There are stories of wounded soldiers dying from their wounds while hiding in the attic. In February of 1862, the famous “orphan brigade” fled Bowling Green and headed for Nashville, Tennessee. It is estimated that twelve thousand rebel troops were camped on the property during one night and, within a day; an estimated force of eighteen thousand Union troops chasing them also camped on the Caldwell farm for several days. It is documented that several soldiers never physically left with their comrades and at least two soldiers lie buried on the property.
The Caldwell family had its own tragedies to accommodate with the deaths of family members and especially with the tragic death of seven-year-old Elizabeth Caldwell. Elizabeth, while playing in the basement “winter” kitchen with her cousin, caught her dress on fire and burned to death.
