United States-based Stephen Bray from Wilson, North Carolina, took over his social media handle on Saturday, April 2, 2023, and posted about his most Historical pile, built in 1481, centuries ago. Bray also expressed gratitude for his warm welcome in the Facebook Official group ‘Our Old Home’.

Stephen Bray said that his old home was built in 1481; talking about the history of his oldest Historical pile, Stephen said, “I’m not going to bore you with all its history, or should I say people’s interpretations of such”.


Stephen Bray shared, In all of its 542 years, it’s been a home for a yokel, his family and livestock, a laundry and eventually, a family home. About the home built, Stephen shared that his Historical pile has underground passages leading to the “big house” vaulted ceiling underground rooms.

Stephen, on the Legendaries of his home, shared that there are bodies buried somewhere on the grounds, which may account for ghosts/spirits which regularly appear. But nothing is intimidating or frightening about it, as they only make their presence known frequently.

Stephen also shared that, dismally, a builder rescued the house from dereliction. Many repairs were also made to his Historical pile, which needed to be more suitable and at all needed. Eventually, many authentic features of his pile were taken away. He spent the last 25 years there and has been doing his best to restore it as funds allow.
