Forsyth Park Inn

The inn began as an 1890s private home, and in its early days was owned by Canadian sea captain Aaron Flint “Rudder” Churchill. When he died in theh home, it was converted to a boarding house and then an apartment building. It became an inn in the 1980s.

It is said that the captain’s adopted niece, Lottie, aged 14, haunts the inn. So the story goes, the captain’s wife Lois had a sister, Anna, who came to live with them. One day Lottie was shocked to find Anna and the captain in an embrace, and in her anger, poisoned Anna’s tea with oleander from the garden. After Anna was gone, Lottie found out that Anna was actually her real mother. The news sent Lottie to an asylum and trouble her to the end of her days. Folks say Lottie’s ghost can be seen in the garden and other spots at the inn, but she usually disappears quickly from sight. She may even pull pranks with objects from time to time.

  1. My daughter and I stayed in a corner room at the Forsythe Inn. Back in our room after dinner my daughter said that she didn’t feel well and went to bed. I went to bed shortly after her. Around two AM I was awakened by the sound of someone walking across the squeaky floor. I immediately awakened from a deep sleep..anticipating a sick child. However, when I looked across to her bed she wasn’t up but sleeping soundly. I assumed it was the “ghost” we had been told about. Being tired and feeling no threat I quickly went back to sleep.

    • What was the room number? I have stayed here twice, most recently last week. Checked out early from Rm # 3. I love the inn but won’t sleep in that room.
