This stunning, antebellum Greek Revival home combines the best of period detail with the comforts of modern day living. Located in the Canton Historic District, the home was built in 1852 by Dr. James Priestley and stayed in the Priestley family until 1996. The house was expanded and remodeled several times through the years. The current restoration began with new owners in 2000.

The figure of a woman (Dr. Priestley’s wife, Susan, perhaps) has been seen in one of the bedrooms as well as from a window and in a doorway. A feeling of sadness can be felt in the bedroom where Mrs. Priestley died. Dr. Priestley has been seen on the front porch. Other happenings have been reported in the house — objects falling, hot spots, and the piano playing while no one was around.
