Snow Hill Inn

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Snow Hill Inn

Although no longer in operation as an inn, the 1830s building is said to have a ghost known as J.J. He allegedly committed suicide by slitting his throat, but there are doubts as to whether this was truly what happened. Regardless, J.J. still resides at the place, according to reports. He appears as the apparition of a young man who goes about locking doors, blowing out candles, opening windows, turning lights off and on, setting off fire alarms, shaking guests’ beds, and lighting the fireplaces. He also has been known to appear in mirrors.
