The mansion on Fairfax Street was built by wealthy Scottish merchant John Carlyle in 1753. The family quickly dwindled as one member after another died from childbirth, disease or accident until there was no one left in the family to inherit the house. It is now a museum. Some say … well, never mind. People are always talking, aren’t they?
Daily tours are only $4 and quite — interesting, especially at this time of year. (Psst, they won’t talk about it and will deny it if you ask them.)
Those of you weak of spirit or faint of heart, TURN BACK NOW, WHILE YOU STILL CAN!!! The rest of you, return tomorrow, if you’re … brave enough … (Cue spooky laughter…)
