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 historic Victorian Queen Ann style home was built by William Edgar Haymond in 1894. It still has it's original floors and staircase, both of which are beautiful and sits on a sandstone foundation. Haymond was a prominent lawyer, and this property served as his home and his first wife, Emma Catherine (mother of his two children) and second wife, Ethel Rhodes. His grandchild, who died at the age of 8, lived in the home at the time of his untimely death.
It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
The property is known as a hot haunted commodity between paranormal investigators around West Virginia.
The first floor disembodied voice of a woman has been caught on a digital recorder. The second floor is much more active. Here it becomes a bit more physical. Folks have been pulled by the arm. You will also hear doors slamming shut and blinds being raised or lowered, by invisible hands. Hearing disembodied footsteps coming down the steps, aw well the sounds of the front door lock unlocking.
Other reports include the sounds caught on digital recorders, conveying words like "Out", "Exit" and "Terrible". An apparition has also been seen of a woman in white on the stairwell landing between the 1st and 2nd floor. The woman in white is also seen going into the bedroom on the 2nd floor. Reports of a child appearing to be playing in the basement are recorded as well. Perhaps this is the phantom of Haymond's grandchild.
A psychic medium stated he could feel the energy of a mentally challenged spirit. He also received messages of a death that occurred in the servant's stairwell. The occurrence was detailed to the method of the loss of life. It was either by strangulation or by hanging. He also confirmed that the home holds many spirits but none of them wished any harm to anyone. Many have spent entire nights in the home, always feeling at ease there with no sense of spiritual threat.
There is no doubt this property has intense spectral energy. Perhaps it comes from the complicated history, including untimely deaths, that still needs to be further clarified. Maybe it is the sandstone foundation that serves as an antenna to otherworldly beings. Regardless, the mysteries and activity within this property make it a "must-visit" location in West Virginia.
