Rotherwood Mansion - Real Haunts in Kingsport TN
The Rotherwood Mansion was built by the Reverend Frederick A. Ross in 1818 and is rumored to be the home of a ghostly Lady in White. Legend says that the lady is Ross's daughter, Rowena, who was said to be looking for her love who drowned in the Holston River nearby. After several more tragedies, Rowena went to the same river where she drowned herself. Ever since, her spirit has lingered at the historical mansion. Joshua Phipps, the second owner of the house, is also said to be a ghost here. Phipps was known in life to be a cruel man, his evil laugh has been heard throughout the mansion.
