The Brass Rail restaurant is known for its hauntings. Legend has it that in 1904, a bride who was just married tripped at the top of the spiral staircase, broke her neck, and died. The groom shortly thereafter hanged himself in an adjacent room. The bride, groom, and even some of her wedding guests are said to appear in the restaurant, usually late at night. Also reported are phone calls with no one on the line, objects that fall on the ground for no apparent reason, voices, and objects that are missing or misplaced.
