Ghosts at the former Waverly plantation reportedly include disembodied voices and music in the ballroom, a mounted rider on the grounds, and a crying girl. Though the home is a private residence, as of 2015, tours are available daily. However, interior photography is prohibited.

The Longwood Plantation, also known as Nutt's Folly, has an extravagant exterior but an unfinished interior, as the home's construction was interrupted by the Civil War. The house is supposedly haunted by its original owners, Dr. Haller Nutt and his wife Julia.

Ghost sightings at Twelve Oaks include Henry Gautier, the owner of the home and one of the town's founders. Other sightings involve three women: an elderly lady, a teenager and a small girl. Many of the home's contents were sold in a bankruptcy auction in 2014, and the property is for sale as of November 2015.
