This historic building was built in 1836, and has served as both a general store and as a hotel, as it was a popular stopover point for stagecoach and canal travellers. The hotel is no longer in operation, but is believed to still have three ghostly tenants who stayed on. The first is a female prostitute, who is believed to have hanged herself in an upstairs room when the hotel was formerly a bordello. Guests and staff claim to have seen a woman hanging by a noose from a rafter, but when they seek help, she suddenly vanishes. The second spirit has been nicknamed Levi by staff after the original owner, and this male apparition appears to have a taste for alcohol. Patrons here have to watch their drinks, as the spook has been known to drain entire schooners in a single gulp. The third apparition is known as the Lilac Lady, who has been drifting through an upstairs hallway. Staff and guests say she leaves behind a pleasant floral aroma wherever she goes throughout the building.
