Sutton, WV is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, William Edgar Haymond House. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The William Edgar Haymond House is a Queen Ann style home built in 1894. It still has it's original floors and staircase, both of which are beautiful and without any creaking you would expect to find in a home that is over 100 years old. It sits on a sandstone foundation as well. The home was built by prominent lawyer, William Edgar Haymond, and was home to two of his wives; Emma Catherine (mother of his two children) (1864-1907) and Ethel Rhodes (1871-1932). His grandchild, who died at the age of 8, was listed as living in the home at the time of death.
EVPs (Electronic voice digital recordings) have been captured with a woman's voice, in total shock while renovators were discussing ideas about removing some of the original features in the home. On the second floor folks have experienced, folks have been grabbed by the arm, in almost an innocent way. Sounds of doors slamming shut on their own have also been captured. Blinds have been raised when lowered, also on their own. A respected psychic has claimed that he could feel the energy of a mentally challenged spirit. He also reported that a death occurred in the servant stairwell, wither by strangulation or by a hanging. He further confirmed that the property holds many spirits, but none of them wished to harm anyone. They only want to tell their stories. Need more?
