LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Tinker Place.
A haunted house
resides in Greensboro, Alabama, however, it is a private residence
and the occupants do not wish ghost hunters to snoop around so they
do not allow guests or tours. No matter, whether they wish to
visitors or not the rumors and stories of ghost still abound
especially through the local residents.
The home was built in 1835 in an old
southern style for a lady by the name of Susian Truman Tinker. She
was a socialite that did much for the cultural development in
Greensboro. There is not much about Susian in the history books,
however, she loved her home and had many guests and parties. She was
not one to leave much because of the love she had for this house.
Many people have seen what is believed
to be Susian wearing gray clothing warming her hands by the fire.
She is often seen around examining the china and crystal in the
china cabinet. She is still even after death a real southern lady
that will smile and nod at guests in her home.
The first person to report seeing
Susian was Mrs. Turpin who at the time owned Tinker Place. She saw
Susian standing in a doorway dressed in gray. Susian very politely
smiled at Mrs. Turpin.
In 1934, while Mrs. Turpin daughter,
Mrs. Waller, and grandchildren were eating dinner in the dining
room, the grandchildren asked who the lady dressed in gray was that
standing near the table. She walked through the doorway of the
dining room, across the living room, and went up the stairs before
A friend of Mrs. Wallers had become ill
and was recuperating in an upstairs bedroom. One evening she called
for Mrs. Wallers to please come up and turn on the overhead light.
Mrs. Wallers did not have to come up as Susian had heard the pleas
and pleasantly turned on the light herself.
As far as anyone knows, Susian still resides in her home and is
being a gracious hostess.
