Built around 1830, this inn is said to be haunted by a servant of the former owners, the Hunts. Before the Hunts fled the house to escape a yellow fever epidemic in 1873, they entrusted their servant, Nathan Wilson, with a chest of gold to pay for the home’s upkeep. Poor Nathan was found dead of yellow fever in the home shortly thereafter, with muddy boots and a shovel at his side. He had apparently buried the gold to keep it safe, and no one knows where. But to this day, the ghost of a man in 19th-century garb can be seen, and he appears desperate to convey his message to anyone who will listen.
