The Houghton home was built in 1906 by T. E. Houghton, a successful merchant who wanted to build a larger home for his expanding family. They lived in the house for approximately two decades with their eleven children. They had twelve children, however, one of the children, young eight year old Augusta, came down with the whooping cough and died when she was given an overdose of cough medicine which back in the day, contained opium. Even after all these years, it is thought that she still roams this house.
|The Stone Lion Inn in Guthrie, Oklahoma is said to be haunted by family of it’s original owners, the Houghton family.|
