This is one of the most recognizable houses in Surrency, visible to passersby on U.S. Highway 341. Sherry Kesling notes that this was the home of Ellen Surrency. She was a member of the founding family of the town who taught school and never married.

  1. Is this the house that was supposed to be haunted or was it an older one. I have been to this one.

    • Eddie, the one that was supposedly the most haunted burned down, I’m told. But someone in the neighborhood suggested this one might be haunted, too. (I only tried to share houses which people reported to be haunted for Halloween, as this is not something I give too much credence to. Just for fun).
