The building that housed Chez Briann Restaurant, now closed, is reported to be haunted. When the building was used as an inn or apartment complex, a woman was asleep there when she awoke to find a ghost floating over her. She was paralyzed and helpless as the man placed coins over her eyes, as if preparing her for an old-time burial. Reports say the building was once a funeral home. A second ghost seen here is that of a woman with a long, jagged scar as if from an autopsy. The site has been featured on Creepy Canada.
