This historic inn is under new ownership, but the ghosts here have blatantly refused to move out. Paranormal activity reported here includes cold spots, doors opening and closing of their own accord and a rocking chair that rocks by itself, as well as a playful male entity.

  1. Next door, at Middle Street Baptist Church, is attatched to the Peirce Mansion that was built in 1799. There have been many paranormal things; including, disembodied voices, singing, talking, and footsteps.

    • my grandfather ( rev. Bob Lamson) used to be a reverend for middle street baptist church, he retired when I was 10 years old but I do remember it was quite a spooky area to be sometimes, my grandfather also used to tell stories of a church he preached at that he was unable to be alone there at night as he would be in his office and hear footsteps then the doorknob to his office would rattle when he would check no one was there, I’m not sure if this is the same church or not as he was a preacher for many churches but certainly is a spooky tale

  2. We stayed there last summer and will never go back. We were awakened numerous times by the front door opening and heard screams from under the floor in our room at least twice. It was so real that I thought somebody was in our room. I didn’t sleep the entire night worrying about my family’s safety. Like I said, never again! Totally haunted.

  3. Way back in 1997 I had my wedding reception at the Sise Inn. I have only wonderful memories of this historic home and we are still married. No idea why people claim this house to be haunted — perhaps to “up” revenue?
