The 1839 inn is thought to be haunted by a ghost of a Confederate soldier with a long beard, nicknamed The Colonel. He is a friendly and playful ghost, known to close doors behind people, make the birdbath water bubbly and frothy, and walk around with audible footsteps. His apparition has been seen from the waist up.

    1. We were walking into the restrooms. My girl friend and I, she was going in the ladies,I was walking into the men’s and she paused at the door before entering because we both heard what sounded like an automatic paper towel dispenser. She said oh, there’s someone in there. But there wasn’t. Nor does either restroom have a paper towel dispenser!
