Brumley MO is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Haunted Castle House. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
History of the site goes back to 1812 with various buildings on the property, but the current home wasn't built until around 1850 by Dr. Walter Dixon. This was when it was called the Castle House due to its unusual style. One Saturday, Mrs. Dixon was preparing for her a large party but passed away before her guests arrived. Her husband found her body at the head of the stairs. In 1862, Union troops camped near the house. After Confederate troops attacked, a truce was called, and injured soldiers from both sides were brought to the Castle House for treatment. Later it was sold to Dr. Myron D. Jones in 1912. He also had his office in the house. In 1918, when the flu pandemic hit Brumley, he put tents in the yard to house the hundreds of sick patients. d as his home and office.

The house fell into disrepair after Dr. Jones retired until the current owners purchased it in 2013.
Multiple reports of "a woman in an old fashioned party dress" lingering at the top of the stair have been reported. There have been reports of disembodied screams on the second floor as well. There was a field hospital set up on the south side of the house. It is said that there are at least 20 known graves on the property, which are thought to be casualties from this skirmish. The rest could be the victims of the flu epidemic. Most are unmarked, found by cadaver dogs.

Then it was advertised as a haunted bed & breakfast.
