Paranormal Activity at Griffith Homeplace.
"Sometime spirits are not just found in bottles"
For over 130 years paranormal activity has been reported at Griffith Homeplace and continues on a somewhat periodic basis to this day. But the topic was carefully guarded and seldom discussed outside the immediate family, except by curiosity seekers who knew nothing of the truth. Now the stories are told -- "The Case of the Careening Cloisonné", "The Cuddling Partner", "The Levitating Loaf", "Andy and the Midnight Visitor", and many more.
The Griffith Homeplace in Terrell, Texas, has been the home of Griffiths since 1882. Davis Griffith-Cox, of the six generations to have resided at Homeplace, has written of unexplained but undeniable events which have been experienced not only by family members, including himself, but also its servants, sojourners, carpenters, construction workers and guests alike. Seldom sinister, the seemingly friendly ghosts are often identified as former family members still in residence. Or, as some staunch non-believers would suggest, the events are simply matters of happenstance.
Hauntings or Happenstance? Decide for Yourself.
Davis Griffith-Cox, scion of the distinguished families of Bedinger and Griffith, grew up at Griffith Homeplace He writes of unexplainable events with an entertaining blend of professorial erudition and good ole boy East Texas humor. Indeed, his self-caricature as a “good ole boy” is belied by his education and experience. Griffith-Cox has degrees in both painting and sculpture and has served as university professor of these subjects. He is currently dedicated to restoring and maintaining the memorabilia, artifacts and architecture of the Griffith Homeplace Museum & Research Center in Terrell, Texas.
