The Parsonage, now closed, was a restaurant set inside an 1855 minister’s home for the Reformed Dutch Church. It was said to be haunted by an apparition of a lady in 1800s clothing and a bonnet, who appeared between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. in an upper window. Furthermore, apparitions of soldiers have been seen in the dining room during operating hours. They walked through the building and out toward the cemetery, which is across the road.
