Charlie Lawson, a farmer from Stokes County, killed his wife and six of his seven children with a gun and a blunt object in Germanton before committing suicide in 1929. The bodies were embalmed and prepared for burial at T.B. Knight Funeral Parlor, which is located upstairs from Madison Dry Goods in Madison. The building is part of a Netflix show called “28 Days Haunted.”
Madison Dry Goods sells casual and outdoor clothing, as well as food items from Rockingham County and North Carolina. In 1929, the area above the store was home to a funeral parlor, where the bodies of the Lawson family massacre were embalmed and readied for burial. The building is featured in the Netflix show “28 Days Haunted.”
The old historic building in Madison that was used in the Netflix series “28 Days Haunted” is now getting a lot of attention.
The structure at 104 W. Murphy St. is attached to one of the most gruesome mass murders in North Carolina history — the 1929 Lawson family murders.
Charlie Lawson, a 43-year-old farmer from Stokes County, killed his wife and six of his seven children with a gun and a blunt object in Germanton on Christmas afternoon. He then took his own life. This happened in the same year that the United States entered the Great Depression.
The building was erected in 1908 and has been the home of Madison Dry Goods and Country Store for 27 years.
The owners of Madison Dry Goods, Richard and Kathy Miller, bought the building in 1998. They knew about the building’s history, which included housing the former Penn Hardware Store. But they were not prepared for the stories of unexplainable activity that have gotten the attention of national paranormal investigators over the past decade.
The Millers and some people who go to the museum upstairs where the funeral home used to be, say they feel like someone is there with them even though no one is there.
The Millers were invited to participate in a show where they cross over to the spirit world for 28 days.
The Netflix production team believes in a theory that Ed and Lorraine Warren came up with about ghosts haunting places. Ed and Lorraine Warren are famous for investigating cases of hauntings, like the one in Amityville that inspired the “The Amityville Horror” books and movies.
The Warrens say that it takes 28 days for the human and spirit worlds to connect. So, the makers of the Netflix show asked the Millers for permission to access their building for 28 days straight, from August 12th to September 15th, 2021.
The Millers were not allowed to go in their store for a month and they did not know what the paranormal team found.
“28 Days Haunting” is a TV show with six episodes. Each episode is 40 minutes long. The show is about an investigation of a place in Madison, Connecticut, and Colorado that is said to be haunted.
Two people who say they have supernatural powers came to Madison, Wisconsin without knowing anything about a local crime. They were not allowed to use the internet during their stay, so they couldn’t look up information.
Miller is at a funeral and she starts to feel like the victim is in the casket and someone is standing over it. She then breaks out of the trance and leaves the room. She also says she feels pressure in her head.
As the series continues, Miller gets worse emotionally, saying that dark forces are taking advantage of her psyche. She debates quitting the project but decides to stay after crying and smoking a cigarette on Murphy Street.
The embalmer was selected because Knight had the only funeral home in the region large enough to accommodate eight bodies and he had elevator access, historians say.
The murders of the Ranes drew a lot of attention from the public, and around 5,000 people came to Madison to see the funeral procession of the Ranes who were being buried in Germanton, North Carolina.
