The building that houses the Governor’s Cafe dates back to 1857 and is said to be haunted. But you don’t have to stay up all night or wait until after closing time to witness a ghost here. Reports say that if you look closely at the paintings of historic Dover buildings on the cafe walls, you’ll see that the artist has included a ghost peeking out of a window in each painting.
