Waveland is a handsome mansion
that was built in the late 1840s by Joseph Bryan, a great nephew of Daniel
Boone. While Joseph was engaged in running his hemp plantation, his wife
Margaret Cartmell Bryan was the mistress of the house and had a great task in
maintaining the household. Some discount the notion that there may be
ghosts in the house, but residents of the upstairs apartment, and paranormal
investigators have found different.
It appears that Margaret is still
there, giving orders to the house servants. Judging from the tone, she is
dealing with a stubborn servant, too. At times she can be quite loud.
One particular night in 2006, the voices were so loud (but at the same time,
indiscernible) that they kept the residents up most of the night. The next
morning, one resident, who was the head guide, went down and admonished the
spirits for their ruckus.
