Governor Duncan lived in the mansion with his petite wife, who was more than a foot and a half shorter than him. In 1938 he died in his bed from sudden illness.
Director and tour guide, Loretta Widdows, says despite his dieing in the home, she doesn't think it's haunted.
"We never talk about it being haunted," says Widdows, "Children playing in the park say they see people in the windows, but I must say I never have."
Making the Governor Duncan Mansion even more interesting, most of the furniture and art inside was actually used by the Duncans.
The historic home is open for tours every Wednesday and Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon. It sits in Duncan Park at the corner of West State Street and Webster Street.
