The house here was originally built in 1890, and when it became a bed-and-breakfast inn in the 1990s, the owners found that they were not alone! Spirits are said to haunt the second and third floors, and can also be found near the front door and first-floor closet. Ghosts said to reside here are a 12- or 13-year old boy named Moby, a man called Cedric (who smokes cigarettes), a man named Jakob, and a female, Nancy. Other spirits are said to visit here as well. A first-floor wall is said to be a portal to the afterlife, since paintings won’t stay hung on that wall. Witnesses have seen indentations as if someome is lying on the beds, have experienced missing objects that turn up later in strange places, and have seen doors and windows that open and close by themselves and heard unexplained knocks on doors. It is reported that dogs become scared to death when taken to the third floor.
