In the Spring of 1850, Doctor Walter D. Dixon and his wife Martha, completed the construction of what is now known as the Haunted Historic Castle House. While other homes in Miller County were often one-room cabins, Dr. Dixon spared no price in building a breathtaking Victorian above the bustling City of Brumley, Missouri. The two story home, complete with its own 30-foot tall turret, earned it the name Castle House.

As a prominent physician in the area, Dr. Dixon practiced out of the home and made house calls throughout the area. The waiting room for patients was located in the first floor foyer, but despite illness or injuries, patients were required to climb the stairs to the doctor's exam room on the second floor. With the Civil War dividing the nation, the local area was also split between Confederate sympathizers and Union supporters. Federal troops were bivouacked in the pasture below the Castle House at Camp Union. Legend tells us that in 1862, following a skirmish between rebel guerrillas and Federal troops, wounded soldiers from both sides were brought to the Castle House under a flag of truce.

In 2013, the home sat empty and vandalized. Things changed for the positive in November 2013, when the Castle House was purchased by Nick & Marcy Sacco. They immediately went to work to restore the Castle House to its original charm and beauty. Today the Castle House shines as a landmark in Miller County with the support of its local community.
