Haunted Lafayette: Check-in at the historic McDonald Airbnb | Archive

ATTICA, Ind. (WLFI) – Attica’s historic McDonald’s House was built in 1855.

In 2014, the house was placed on Indiana’s 10 Most Endangered Landmarks list. It remained on the list until 2016. It now operates as an Airbnb.

“Most of our guests are very happy with their stay,” property manager Michael Baird told News 18. “They love the renovation…the restoration.”

The story of the house can spill over into the supernatural realm.

Ghosts are said to have lived on the property.

Baird recalled a time when a team of investigators brought his dog.

“The investigating team called the dog Chester,” Baird explained. “When we listened to the recording, you could clearly hear a male voice saying ‘come on, Chestnut,’ which was the dog’s name.”

Kevin Steiner, director of the Wabash Paranormal Research Society, also investigated the property.

He made some interesting discoveries.

“We have an SLS camera that we captured an entity next to Mike, the manager here,” Steiner told News 18. “I couldn’t see it…I was on the other side of room, but we captured the evidence, and it looked pretty cool.”

Whether you’re looking for a historic home to while away the weekend or the thrill of meeting a ghost, Airbnb Historic Attica is sure to provide.

“Everyone says the spirits are happy. They watch over the property,” Baird told us. “They are very protective of the house and the guests staying there.”
