Basement Area Where The Campbells Lived During The Period When The Buffalo Seminary
Was Being Conducted From 1818-August,1823. One "legend" says that the poor ventilation in
the basement of the old house led to the premature deaths of Campbell's first wife, and some
of his children, but no evidence has ever arisen to support this. Margaret did not die until
October of 1827, and the family had long since not lived in the basement of the house.
