Mission Table - Bowers Harbor Inn

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Mission Table - Bowers Harbor Inn

Originally built in the 1880s, this inn is said to be haunted by the original owner’s wife, Genevive Stickney. The sordid story is that Mr. Stickney had an affair with their nurse. When he died, he left all his money to the nurse, and only the house to Genevive, who eventually hanged herself from the elevator shaft in despair. Her apparition has been seen in mirrors and in photographs, and she has been known to turn lights on and off and cause paintings to fall off the walls.

  1. It was when I was in my early thirties, there with a business group for dinner. Had just read the story. Went up the stairs and looked hard in the mirror that was there. Went into the ladies room, was by myself, it got super cold and a roll of toilet paper went rolling across the floor with no one touching it. Weird but true. Again I was by myself.
