Just south of Salamanca is a little town called Red House where no more than forty people reside. Small by any standard there still persists a folklore about the origins of the town and its namesake, a crimson red Civil War era house built in the early 1800’s. The Frecks family resided in the Red House area during the Civil War and was not a stranger to the horrors that accompanied it. The eldest son John Frecks went off to war and never came back.
Stricken with misery his widow began an affair with the next eldest son James. Questions on whether the affair began after or before John’s death have come up over the years but there is no evidence to support such allegations. However, when ostracized from the family for such an indiscretion the young couple supposedly took their own lives from despair. It is said that to this day the red house is haunted by the unfortunate souls of two young lovers. There have been many attempts to reside in the house but no one has stayed long enough within the crimson walls. And no one knows for sure that if it is haunted who walks there, the young lovers or a Civil War soldier possibly scorned by the woman he loved and his own blood, James.
