Victor Warfield and his wife move into an old mansion in 1882. Warfield notices that the mansion was built by Andrew Darwood but it was eventually taken over by a man named Anton Dickerson. Warfield speculates that Dickerson might have murdered Darwood to take possession of the mansion. A hooded figure appears to Warfield one night and offers to reveal the mansion's history. He recounts that the mansion was built by Darwood using stolen money. The paranoid Darwood reinvents himself as Anton Dickerson in order to avoid his pursuers. Warfield then inquires as to how the the hooded figure knows all of these facts. At this point the hooded figure pulls off his hood and is revealed to be the ghost of Anton Dickerson, the man that murdered himself.
