At this late-1800s hotel, apparitions have been seen and unexplained voices heard. Rumor has it that the hauntings may stem from a shipwreck of the Powhattan in 1854, which killed some 300 people. Bodies from the shipwreck were stored in this building for a bit, and it is said that then-owner Edward Jennings robbed their bodies. One of the apparitions seen here is of a mother and child.
