This lovely Greek-Revival style mansion was built in 1830 by J.W. Mauldin. Over the years the mansion changed hands quite a few times; each owner adding their own touches to it. Today the Anchuca Mansion is a bed and breakfast, a restaurant and tours are also given here.

The most well known apparition in this mansion is that of a woman dressed in period clothing. This entity has been seen by home owners and guests since 1966 and she is usually spotted in the parlor or the dining room.

Many guests at the Anchuca Mansion have also felt the presence of this female spirit, as well as, the presence of an unknown entity in the slave quarters.

During the Civil War, this home was converted into a make shift hospital and some of the men who suffered and died here are still hanging around. The apparitions of Civil War soldiers have also been seen roaming about this house, accompanied by flickering lights and footsteps.
