The Ocatagon House was purchased in 2001 by Billy Byrd whom has been restoring the dwelling to its historical significance.
Billy has commented that he often hears strange noises such as footsteps throughout the house and doors opening and closing. Several apparitions have been witnessed, one being a man riding a wagon in the back yard and a young black girl wearing a blue dress.
Keith Fournier, a professional paranormal investigator, stated that the amount of paranormal activity that is present in this house has prompted the filming of numerous episodes by major paranormal investigative shows.
