They had to crawl out of the window and onto the roof to get out of the house. He said he heard lots of whispers and breathing in the house and had constant chills! They have a ghost tour every year during Halloween over there through the farm.
It tells the past history of the farm and trust me it's creepy as hell. I'm going again this year and can't stop thinking about it when I go to sleep every night! Check it out on wolfbane.org.

The most famous haunted place in Appomattox is the Crawford Farm out near Falling River and Promise Land. Elijah Crawford was a plantation owner (who fought in the Civil War. ) He and his wife had a love like in a Nicholas Sparks novel and became very wealthy after the war, mainly because Elijah had freed all of his slaves years before the war and most had stayed on the farm as workers. Thus when other planters were scrambling for laborers after slavery was abolished, Elijah had a powerful workforce and developed an incredibly successful tobacco and cotton farm.
Eventually, Elijah's wife passed away giving birth to his 2nd child (a deformed boy named Amos) and Elijah began meeting with a former slave from Haiti named Greenie, who know voodoo and dark magic, to try and contact his dead wife, Alice. Six years after Alice Crawford's death, Elijah's daughter, Abigail died with typhoid fever.
After this, Elijah shut down the farm. He fired most of his employees and turned his barns into what were known as his ''work houses,'' where he would meet with Greenie and attempt to contact, and eventually to bring his wife and daughter back from the dead. Over the course of Elijah's life nine people went missing or died mysteriously on the farm. Since his death, another twelve disappearance and unexplained deaths have occurred on the Crawford Farm.
