Baird House Inn

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Baird House Inn

This historic house inn may no longer be in operation, and is now a private residence. The inn was a popular stopover for travellers on the river, and since it was built in 1825, has had a colourful history. Guests and staff at the former inn have reported hearing a woman singing and have felt an eerie presence on the lower floor of the building. On the second floor, doors often open and close of their own accord, lights flicker for no apparent reason and a ghostly cat has been noted vanishing around corners.
