This 1907 historic hotel was formerly sleeping quarters for railroad passengers staying the night in town, and is supposed to have a few ghost stories associated with its colourful past. The building is allegedly haunted by a pair of ghostly children looking for their parents, as well as a lady in a nightgown who has been seen drifting through closed doors.

  1. I stayed here on the 2nd floor in1995 with my husband. Our room was definitely haunted. The TV turned on and off on it’s own several times and the hutch door would open and close that the TV was in.
