Silver Creek Inn and Cafe

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Silver Creek Inn and Cafe

Housed in an old-fashioned abode built in 1885 by Frank Lauderbaugh, the current inn and cafĂ© are located in a section of the building that once served as the town general store. The place sat abandoned until the 1980’s, when the current owner Stan King painstakingly restored the building into the accommodation it serves as today. According to the owner and past guests, the inn is quite haunted. The apparition of a young girl has appeared on several occasions to visitors staying in the Blue Room, while a ghostly miner has been heard tramping up the stairs late at night. Witnesses say the ghost is never seen, only heard.
