Spencer Mountain Mansion


The Town of Spencer Mountain was settled in 1772 by Zachariah Spencer, a local Tory. In 1874, J. Harvey Wilson II built a water-powered textile mill (Wilson & Moore Cotton Mill) at the base of Spencer Mountain. W. Thomas Love and John C. Rankin purchased the mill in 1895 and changed its name to Spencer Mountain Mills. A predecessor of Duke Power purchased the mill and the hydroelectric plant that powered it in 1926. The mill was purchased by Pharr Yarns in 1957 and was shut down in 1999 because all the workers were diagnosed with cancer. Spencer Mountain was incorporated for a brief period of time between 1895 and 1909 and again in 1963. The mansion is located at 222 Spencer Mountain Rd, across the street from the Pharr Yarns Mill at the base of the mountain which is now torn down with a fence around the property. The mansion is said to have been built in the late 1700’s on top of the Old Spencer Mountain Memorial Cemetery. The entire hillside from Pharr Blvd. all the way over to Ranlo/Spencer Mountain Road was once a final resting place for many. Some of the old mill houses sit right on top of still visible tombstones. In the late 1990’s land was donated by the property owners to one of the families decedents that were confirmed as having family buried on this same hillside. You can now view this grave site that sits on the hillside on Main Street Spencer Mountain which is approximately 300 feet from the mansion. In 1997 Tracy Hamrick a friend of mine from High school was elected as mayor of Spencer Mountain. Hamrick decided it would be fun to have a Halloween haunted house attraction at the mansion to raise money for the town and the volunteer fire department. Pharr Yarns, which owns the mansion, agreed to let him use the vacant house. But shortly after opening up the haunted attraction to the public the employees started to realize that the mansion truly was haunted. Many volunteer firefighters worked at the haunted mansion during the Halloween season. In 2005, the mansion was listed in a book titled “Encyclopedia of the World’s Most Haunted Places.” Now the mansion is closed to the public. It is in very bad shape due to vandalism and lack of preservation by the owners. It is ridden with no trespassing signs and its boarded up to keep unwanted guests out. As of today the mansion is not listed as a historical sight and it is not getting the credit and attention it deserves. The house was never lived in Mrs.Love had it built for her brother so he could live in it after he returned from the war,but he never made it back and the mansion at empty for years till Pharr yarns let the church use it as a recreation hall. This house is only miles from where I grew up and my family worked at the mill,my family and our team Gaston county Paranormal has also investigated the house and whole town of Spencer mountain many times through the years because the whole place is a Ghost town
