In March 2021 I stopped by Rose Mont in Gallatin, Tennessee to visit with the director. After walking around the property I realized that he was either not there, or perhaps working in the reception hall behind the house.
As I walked around the patio to the backside of the property, I glanced at the reception hall and noticed a man in a fedora in a window. He was turned sideways and looking down.
After doing a startled double take, I looked back to the same spot and no one was there. I walked up to the window and looked around. All the lights were off and the building was completely empty.
I talked to the director about my experience and he told me that I wasn’t the first person to see a man wearing a fedora in the reception hall. According to him it was Squire Guild, who was a member of the Guild family who spent a lot of time in the building when it was a garage in mid-20th century.
This wasn’t my first paranormal experience at Rose Mont. Two years ago I captured an EVP of a woman on the front porch.
