  1. ive seen a man in a window upstairs just staring at me when we walked outside. he was dressed in clothes not from this century. he just looked upset or mad. and when my friend and i went into the bathroom the sinks turned on by themselves. no one else was in there but us. (no it wasnt the automatic sinks.)

  2. Sent you a picture which was sent to me by a friend while visiting the Ship Inn in Exton PA. The picture was taken with a cell phone but there is something there at the top of the stairs for sure. Looks like a woman to me with long brown hair. Not visible with the naked eye. Very strange

  3. Recently had lunch there in June, 2017. Very nice and I was one at a table of six. Broad daylight but not crowded with normal business related conversation. I was in the dining room nearest route 30 and my back was facing the hallway. I was distracted by very audible but hard to understand whispers in my right ear. I flinched and was distracted but no one seemed to notice.
