Also residing here is the ghost of a slave named Reuben, rumored to have been hanged in the area that is now the dining room. His apparition has been seen sitting at a dining room table. And a third ghost here is a little girl who has been seen in Room 202 and has been heard crying and laughing in Rooms 206 and 208.

  1. We visited the inn a few days ago, specifically rooms 216 and 219 and captured this photo that shows a strange white fog hanging in front of the lamp. We didn’t spend the night, just took a little tour around the hotel and grounds. It’s a cool old hotel filled with antiques and character … and possibly ghosts.

  2. I spent a night there and may have had a ghostly visitor. There was no breeze but the pull cord on a ceiling fah began to swing around frantically. I looked at it for awhile and then said to the ghost or whatever ” Is that the best you can do/” and the pull chain suddenly stopped moving. No other visitor that night. Maybe I insulted him or her. Oh well. It was a few years ago so I forgot which room but was first room down the hall right from dining room. Beautiful place too.
