King's Tavern - Post House

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  King's Tavern - Post House

A woman is reported to haunt the Tavern. Don’t get suckered into all the balderdash of “human remains found bricked up behind the wall”…that’s just a nice invention to entertain the thrill seekers as no such evidence exists. But still there are those who claim to have seen and felt a ghostly presence there and it’s worth a stop and see, dubious history aside.

    1. Now this place is really haunted the ghost adventures crew went there and they got a lot of evps and other stuff. This place is on my bucket list

    2. I also watched episode of ‘ghost adventures’ which is trully what inspired me to try to visit King’s Tavern in near future. Hopefully, I will not be disappointed by such sound spirits considering The Tavern has its own Mixologist!

    3. I’ve been there for dinner several times since 1997. I was allowed to go upstairs to the top bedroom, which I’ve done about 3 or 4 times.
      No ghosts, but in 1997, a metal plate sort of jumped off the brick wall it was hanging on in the main ground floor dining room, just AFTER a young couple laughingly disclaimed the idea of hauntings .
      The plate was the thing that intrigued me – it just jumped right over the couple sitting at a small table for 2 against the wall, to the floor beyond the table.
      Another time, a baby was crying somewhere, but I didn’t see a baby around. But, I don’t know about that one.

    4. I lived and worked in Natchez for several years. As a tour guide in nearly every home in Natchez as well as hostess in King’s Tavern for more than three years , I never repeated what others said regarding any home or business. I made a point of researching each place in order to share factual information with visitors .
      Regarding King’s Tavern , The comments posted at the head of this site are thoroughly inaccurate. There was no wall that collapsed . In the main dining room there is a large fireplace. Quite some decades ago a portion of the fireplace chimney collapsed into the grounds outside. Among the brick rubble were three skeletons. Sent for forensic examination , the report revealed that two of the skeletons were those of African American males. The third was that of a teenaged girl approximately sixteen years old. The jeweled Spanish dagger removed from her remains was displayed on the wall of King’s Tavern for many years until it simply disappeared . No one has ever been able to disclose the identity of the person who took possession of the dagger . perhaps it will be returned to the tavern one day .
      As regards the crying infant , it is said that anyone who opens the attic will soon hear the cry of the baby a vicious outlaw known widely as Big Harp murdered when the narrow dining room beside the main room was a mail room. Annoyed by the crying of the baby , Harp snatched it from its Mother’s arms and slung its head against the wall . There are two other versions of the incident. Today , no one can be certain which version is correct , but the fact remains that Big Harp did kill the baby . He and his brother were among the worst of the worst along the Natchez Trace and had no conscience . There were many they robbed and murdered , among them children and babies. They both met their own terrible ends.
      I regret that tour guides in Natchez will tell visitors just anything instead of following actual historical , readily obtainable records. Even so , Natchez is a beautiful place to visit and well worth as much time as you can possibly spend there. Please do go and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere!
