The 1905 building, once a private home, is said to be haunted by original owners Mr. and Mrs. James N. Coombs. In 1911, after the shock of a damaging fire in their home, the Coombses moved to a hotel until the house could be repaired. But Mrs. Coombs was very upset and had taken to her bed; she died 10 days later at the hotel, many say a result of a broken heart. Three weeks later Mr. Coombs died as well, and they are buried side by side in the Chestnut Street Cemetery across the street from their beloved home. Witnesses say the two still reside, in spirit, in their house. The apparitions have been seen, footsteps and noises have been heard, and doors open and close by themselves.
