A big rig was spotted hauling a haunted house through Iowa this week. Tuesday morning, the ghosts of the Maple Grove Hill House got to take a road-trip down the highway. The historical haunted house was witnessed en-route on its way to its new destination in southern Jasper County.
The mansion avoided demolition thanks to its new owner, Sherri Meeker. Meeker purchased the historical house for $2,000, although it was nearly $90,000 to move it. She has plans to restore the home and part of the restoration process involved moving it to a new location in Jasper County.
The Maple Grove Hill house was built in 1865 by Joseph Grayson Long for his family. The house is also known as the J.G. and Regina Long House. Maple Grove Hill, got its name because the Longs planted maple trees on the property.
The house has had a reputation for being haunted for over a hundred years. The question that everyone is wondering is, will the ghosts move with the home?
