Stone's Public House

Built in 1834, Stone’s Public House is said to be haunted by apparitions and spirits who throw glasses off shelves. The portraits are said to watch guests and employees as they go about their business, and doors open and close on their own. Visitors to the upstairs function room describe a strange uneasy feeling. One spirit here is believed to be a “drunkard” named Burt Philips, who may have died here in the 1890s. Others, according to a psychic who visited in the 1980s, may include a chambermaid named Sadie and original owner John Stone himself, said to have communicated with ghost hunters by inhabiting one of their bodies.
