Harrodsburg, KY - Rocky Point Manor

Rocky Point Manor is a Two Story mansion in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. It was built in 1810 for attorney and judge James Haggin. It was considered a grand home for Kentucky during the settlement period, its grounds spanning about 400 acres at the time, and stood next to the historic Fort Harrod.
Following the bloody Battle of Perryville, on October 8, 1862, Rocky Point served as an impromptu field hospital for the wounded, both Union and Confederate soldiers having been treated in its basement, and a crawlspace on the wall having been used as a temporary morgue.

Reportedly haunted by soldiers that died when the building was used as a Field Hospital during the Civil War. The home was featured on Ghost Adventures.
