Ghosts?

Snapped this fence on a Sunday drive to Pymatuning State Park
when we stopped for lunch at a café in Jamestown, PA.
 
The building could use some sprucing up but not bad for 1856.
 
 It appears to be serve several community purposes such as
selling Gelato on Sat. & Sun. and apparently hosts 'Ghost Getaways'.
That won't be on my bucket list.
 The wood trim around the windows are actually built-in shutters which unfold to allow for privacy.
To learn more about the history and features of the Gibson House (especially something about Mark Twain and his pajamas) go here:
 
 
Come on out from behind your fence and join Theresa at
