Alte Welt Gasthof - Old World Inn

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Alte Welt Gasthof - Old World Inn

Housed in the 1915 Stehling Building, the building housed a clothing store and a boarding house when it first opened to the immigrant community. Although reports of hauntings here are largely unsubstantiated, a guest staying at the inn reported sighting a grey shade in their room, while another heard a man’s voice speaking in a foreign language which she couldn’t identify.

  1. My wife and I stayed at a B&B in Fredericksburg. It was an old log cabin built in the mid 1800’s. It had a later addition of another bedroom and a living room and bath. We slept in the log cabin part of the house that had original rock fireplace. In the middle of the night my wife was woke up by the very strong odor of men’s cologne. It was a cologne that she has never smelled before. She got up and searched the house and did not find anything. I slept right through it. Very strange.
