No one can seem to agree on the history of this abandoned mansion in Spencer Mountain. Heck, they can't even agree on the name as we have heard different people refer to it as the Spencer Mountain Mansion, the Pharr Yarns Mansion, and the Old Love House. But here's one thing everyone can agree on: it's haunted.

Yeah, we admit it doesn't really look that scary, just abandoned. Let's run it through the Strange Carolinas Scare-O-Vision™ filter:

There. Now you're scared, right?

Here's what the fine folks at SpencerMountain.com had to say about the mansion:
"The old mansion now sits abroad where the old Spencer Mountain Cemetery used to sit. In fact, the entire hillside from Pharr Blvd. all the way over to Ranlo/Spencer Mountain Road was once a final resting place for many unforgotten souls."

"Lights randomly turn on and off for no reason , batteries in equipment lasts for only minutes, voices talking when no one else is there, music playing when there is no power turned on, tools being moved from one place to another, someone walking around upstairs when no one else is there, children laughing, cold spots throughout the mansion {mostly upstairs and in the basement} and much more..."

After hearing about the mansion and finding ourselves in Gastonia one afternoon, we had to check things out. It wasn't until we made our way to the back of the mansion that we found something interesting.

You see it, right?

The back entrance had been boarded up, but it was clear that something had escaped from the mansion. Since it was only from the waist down, we quickly realized that the Spencer Mountain Mansion was not haunted at all. It was inhabited by leprechauns!

Please note: Strange Carolinas does not condone entering properties without the permission of the owners. However, when there is a hole in the door, we might just go up to the hole and snap a few pictures while remaining outside.

Apparently, the leprechauns are a sad lot:

Who don't really clean up after themselves:

Conclusion: no ghosts, only leprechauns! Another mystery solved by the Strange Carolinas team!
