The building dates back to 1885, and was once a working mill. Captain Albert Hatt, Jr. hung himself in what is now a bakery, back in 1912. His wife, who also died there, has been seen roaming the hallways above. And a story in the local newspaper reports that a few hotel guests ran into former mill owner Robert Keig, who died in 1975.

Elevator goes up and down with nobody on it. Rooms 207 and 208 are the hot spots people hear sounds of the old mill, doors opening and closing but no one there.

  1. stayed in this hotel in 2011 in room 20? can’t remember but in the middle of the night I heard someone breathing right beside my head and it wasn’t my husband, he was on the other side. It was very restful breath sounds like someone sleeping. It really didn’t alarm me, I figured it must be some vent or something that I would make sense of in the morning. When we told the front desk at checkout they said, didn’t you know this place is haunted…..
