The Conference House, aka Billop House, was built in 1680. It was the scene of a tragedy when in 1779 owner Christopher Billop, a British loyalist, accused a female servant of spying on him for the Colonists. She denied the charge, and Billop threw her down the stairs, breaking her neck. Apparitions of both Billop and the servant as well as British soldier ghosts are believed to haunt the premises. Neighbors have heard a man singing or shouting and a woman screaming and falling.
