I was traveling to Linwood KS, took a wrong turn and ended up in front of an old mansion called "Sophie House" I can not find any info on this home. Anyone have any idea who or what it is? THANKS

Yeah it's sad that it's very haunted and weird things happen there. Like the stairs that are burned perfectly down one side, or the fact that your car breaks down at night. I for sure wouldn't mess with that house.

That house is absolutely stunning and the source of so many rumors and ghost stories, I know an old couple lives, there and once a month (knowing from delivering the KC Star to the people in the residence) the strong odor of bleach comes wafting down the hill, almost as if they are cleaning something that was very messy and needed to be hidden. I want so badly, and one day hope to own this house. It is amazing architecture work.

People like to say that it is very haunted.. many teens go there at night to see if it is haunted, but There is 2 older people living in the house.

Why is it named Sophie
House? Is it just a residence? Lots of eagles fly around that part. Of the river and I stumbled upon it. No info online about it,

Yes, but can anyone share the history of the house? Who built it, why, when it was abandoned?

I actually used to clean this house! It is not abandoned it's owned by Peter and Ann Thompson. It is extremely haunted I can tell you from experience! I went upstairs one day to make the beds and vaccuum, when I heard the piano start to play! I immediately went downstairs and no one was there, I then heard a loud bang from upstairs where I then went back up to find both beds unmade when I had just made them! Ever since I have had a strange presence that has followed me! I will never step foot in that place again!

If the Sophie house is haunted those are some lucky ghosts I mean right next to a grave yard on a DEAD end street over looking the river.But in the world of the living its still the most breath taking work of art I have seen and living 5 mins away from it I drive stop take pictures of it all the time and if it is haunted I would share it with any spiritual entitys there.

The Sophie House was built in the late 80's or early 90's by the Thompson's.
