ATTICA, Ind. (WLFI) — Attica's Historic McDonald House was built in 1855.
In 2014, the house was placed on Indiana's 10 Most Endangered Landmarks list. It stayed on the list until 2016. It now operates as An Airbnb.
"Most of our guests are very happy with their stay," the manager for the property, Michael Baird, told News 18. "They love the renovation…the restoration."
The house's history may bleed into the supernatural realm.
Ghosts have been reported to live on the property.
Baird recalled a time when an investigative team brought along their dog.
"The team that was investigating was calling the dog Chester," Baird explained. "When we played back the recording, you could hear a male voice clearly say "come, Chestnut," which was the dog's name."
Kevin Steiner, the manager for the Wabash Paranormal Research Society, has investigated the property as well.
He had some interesting findings.
"We have an SLS camera that we captured an entity next to Mike, the manager here," Steiner told News 18. "I didn't get to see it...I was on the other side of the room, but we captured the evidence, and it looked pretty sweet."
Whether you're looking for a historic home to spend the weekend in or the thrill of possibly running into a ghost, the Historical Attica Airbnb is sure to provide.
"Everybody says the spirits are happy. They're watching over the property," Baird told us. "They're very protective of the house and the guests that stay in the house."
