Location: Ashe Ave.
Built in the 1920Ős for a wealthy tobacco executive, this
house was once the site of extremely lavish parties.
People would become severely inebriated and then drive
home. One night in 1927, it is said that a car carrying
three young women and their driver ran off the Ashe
Bridge, crashing onto the train tracks below. The three
women and their driver died instantly-the latter being
decapitated. It is said that the three women can still be
seen on the "Duke's" front porch, waiting for him to
answer the door. The driver is said to still wander the
tracks in search of his head.
