The inn was originally built as the Reed House in 1892. There have been many spooky occurrences here, such as one night in thw 1970s when heavy footsteps were heard climbing the back stairs late at night, but no one was there. Another time, after folks were laughing and scoffing at the rumors of the place being haunted, the Christmas tree suddenly fell over. And the ghosts here seem to like playing pool: Pool balls are heard clacking together when no one is in the room, and racked balls are often broken spart by unseen players. Sometimes the pool balls disappear, only to be found later in a strange place. There also are two rooms, the Circus Room and the Lavender Room, that have ghosts in residence. The doors there are said to open and close by themselves.
