GREENFIELD — For a thrill-seeker, there’s no denying the allure of the dilapidated old farmhouse off CR 300N in Buck Creek Township.
They call it Black Moon Manor.
Barely visible from the road, hidden behind a cornfield and a large weeping willow, the house has a history “so horrible the family would keep it to themselves for as long as they could,” according to a website promoting the property as a ghost-hunting hotspot.
But the same story that draws seekers of the supernatural has upset family members whose ancestors lived in the house and were respected in the community. The descendents say their family history has been sullied by an imaginative but damning legend with no basis in fact.
