The Middleton House Ghost Photograph, 1917.
The old house, abandoned after a fire, has been the subject of ghost stories for a century. Some talk about a child-like entity wandering the remains of the building. This controversial image might be the only evidence of its existence.
The house, located near Charleston, South Carolina, once belonged to a wealthy family. It burned down in 1898 and took Mattie, the only child of the couple, with it. Due to the family falling on hard times, it was never rebuilt. It soon became a hotbed for paranormal rumors.
Recently, paranormal investigator J. Reach found an old, burnt photograph thought to be Mattie’s among the rubble. Its possible relation with the apparition is still undetermined.
