Pickens County Courthouse 

The mysterious face of a freed slave named Henry Wells is said to appear in a window of the Pickens County Courthouse in Carrollton, Alabama. Wells, a freed slave, was lynched after being convicted of burning down the city's court house in 1876 and allegedly vowed to haunt the town for eternity for his wrongful death.
