A Historical Treasure, The Clayton House is Also One of the Most Haunted Places in Arkansas

It seems as though historic Southern Gothic homes and ghostly hauntings go hand-in-hand. The Clayton House in Fort Smith is no different. Through a few ownership changes, the Civil War, and murder, it is unsurprising that so much paranormal activity has occurred here.
