Although this 1700s inn is currently closed and up for sale, it still is believed to have ghostly guests. Locals may tell you a tale of a murder suspect, Indian Joe, who was hanged in front of the inn and buried on the grounds. He was said to have killed a little girl named Emily; however, it was learned after the execution that Indian Joe was innocent of the crime. Both Indian Joe’s and Emily’s apparitions have been seen around the property, Emily most often in or near the ladies’ restroom on the main floor. One report says she was also seen at the top of the stairs holding a doll. Other ghosts have been seen here, elderly ladies and gentlemen often found in the lounge area. One of the men is said to sport a ghastly plaid jacket.
