The Minton House

Located in Cape Girardeau, Mo
This historic home is now a private residence. At the start of the Civil War, this home was owned by Matthew Moore, the publisher of the pro-confederate newspaper, The Cape Girardeau Eagle, which was taken over by the Union Army to publish pro-Union news. During the war, the house was as a smallpox hospital for soldiers and its thought that those who died here are responsible for its haunting.
