1895 Tarlton House

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  1895 Tarlton House

At this bed-and-breakfast inn, as the name implies built in 1895, builder Mr. Tarlton himself is said to wander in spirit. Rumor has it that he hanged himself on floor 3 after his second wife died. Witnesses have heard his footsteps and felt cool gusts of wind on their faces. There are journals in each room where guests can write about anything strange that happened during their stay.

  1. My great uncle and his wife used to own and run the Tarlton House when I was a little kid (maybe 10 years ago; Mr and Mrs Lovelace), and myself and two of my cousins would play in that third story room and bathroom and would experience little paranormal activities that I guess we didnt understand at the time. It’s making more sense to me now.

  2. Hey Erika,
    My group is scouting locations to film for our paranormal history show. The house is stunning and sounds like there is a great history behind it. I am trying to get in contact with the current owners, would you happen to know who that may be or how I can contact them?
