LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – What is now known to us as the Little Rock Visitor Center was once a home to several lawyers, a chief justice, and even a Secretary of State. The house, built between 1842 and 1843, has a rich history and a number of haunting reports.

Others have reported cold spots, random noises, shadows, and sparkling lights where some of the items original to the home are stored.
