The 1859 Cafe was believed to be haunted by the friendly ghost of a blonde woman in a long white dress. Actually built in 1859 as a home and a general store, the house was the setting for apparitions that appeared in the bathroom mirror or in photographs, and flickering lights. The business is no longer in operation, and reports say that the building was put up for sale.
