The historic Country Tavern restaurant is housed in a place that was built in 1741 and was once owned by English sea captain Ford and his young wife Elizabeth. Legend has it that when he was off to sea for an extended time, he came home to find Elizabeth had given birth, and it was not his. In a rage, Ford killed the baby and locked up his wife. When he released Elizabeth, she attacked him for killing her baby, and he stabbed her and threw her body in the well. Today, the place is said to be haunted by Elizabeth, who appears as a woman in white. Witnesses also have reported footsteps, objects that are moved or thrown across the room, cold spots and strange sounds.
