The Sweetwater Mansion, infamous or famous for being a popular paranormal investigation site, is an 1800’s plantation house. Designed by John Brahan, it is also known as Governor Robert Patton House and it got enlisted on the National Register of Historic Places. The Sweetwater Mansion holds the legend of Gothic culture and Black Magic being performed in the early years that have resulted in the so-called frequent paranormal sightings such as shadowy figures, intelligible whispers and cackling laughter, women wearing 19th century garbs and so on. So, if you find any object moved spontaneously from its place, you can think twice of the legend of the place!

Sweetwater Mansion Reviews & Ratings
It is a blast from the past. It is so awesome to realize that this beautiful house was standing tall during the Civil War. It was built in 1835 and even though for a time it was left unchecked, thankful there has been a movement to bring it back to its former glory. If you have a chance to visit Florence make this one of your stops.
Do not recommend attempting to visit this historic house. You might can see it from the gate, but the owner lives in Atlanta Ga and has the property for sale at an inflated price around 3 million dollars, while the tax office has it appraised at $880,00. Another relative lives in Muscle Shoals and is not friendly. This has also been know as the Gov. Patton Estate and Weeden Estate.
Got to the gate, called the property manager. Property manager was rude to my girlfriend and we were told “If you set foot on the property we will call the cops.” Wonderful historic landmark.
Over all the place is Worth the visit. My suggestion would be to do alittle research before going, this way you have alittle more understanding of it's history. Plus many people have stated that Sweetwater is heavily haunted, I wouldn't say it's heavily, but it is haunted.
Never got to actually see it because the gate was always locked and i didn't think they did yours anymore
