This is the "other" old manstion in Fairfax, not the Tallchief home. I'm still trying to find some history on this place, but all I get from the locals is "oh, the haunted house?" I went through it from top to the basement and ne'er an orb, cold spot, electromagnetic disturbance, feelings of being watched, or anything whispering "Get out!". However, it would make a great Halloween spook house.

I'm guessing construction in the mid 1920's, probably by an Osage Indian family during the oil boom. The house is at the end of a loooong driveway and practically isn't visible from the road. The grounds consist of the house proper, detached garage with mother in law apartment above, wooden house was probably the servants quarters. A large barn and smaller outbuildings where behind the property.

Someone had been cleaning up, hacking some of the trees back and the yard was actually in decent shape, though it was probably done in the fall as it looked like nothing had been touched in awhile.

The upstairs entrance was on the back, but has collapsed, not that I would have trusted the floor anyway.

The old barn.

This old Scout was on the other side of the garage. The top was over near the servants quarters.
Image

The servants quarters was just the shell.
Image

The guttering was still largly in place, though the roof had several bad leaks. I could tell someone had done some cleanup, but I have no idea who currently owns the property or their plans

This "haunted" mansion was owned by the Hallgood(e)'s in Fairfax. It is either like near the main road of the town, or it's right before you enter the town.
