Congress Inn

In 1987, a guest awoke from sleeping on his stomach to find that someone was sitting on his backside, so he was unable to turn over. After asking around, he learned that the inn had been used as a Civil War hospital, and it is said that the death toll was so high that the dead were cemented into the walls of the basement.

  1. My wife and i managed this location back in 1989. we lived in the two story structure where it is supposed to be haunted . we never saw or heard anything out of the normal,i have been in the basement many times, our laundry room for storing linens was in the basement , we catered to
    nashville automotive diesel students who shared rooms there ,they never said anything seeing or hearing anything ,out of the normal. Lots of myths , I think . The building was used as a hospital and we did hear the stories about the walls having dead soldiers buried in them,but they never bothered us and we didnt bother them.

  2. hot bed for prostitution in the late 90s lot of police stings happened there busting prostitutes and johns, never heard of it being hainted though
