Although recognized as a popular wedding venue, the Woodruff-Fontaine House is actually one of Memphis’ most haunted buildings.
Legend surrounds that of Mollie Woodruff, the daughter of original homeowner Amos Woodruff, who experienced repeated tragedies there. A few years after being wed at the home, she gave birth to a baby that died the same day – followed by her husband, who passed away just three months later.
They say Mollie’s ghost is often seen sitting on her bed, and then abruptly disappears – leaving an imprint of her shape on the comforter, and the scent of her perfume in the air.
