This hotel dates back to 1772, and is the oldest continuously operated hotel in the country. And, according to staff and guests, it may just be the most haunted as well. Visitors and employees at the inn have reported cold spots, the scent of perfume, ghostly voices, disembodied footsteps and various apparitions, including a woman in a black dress who fell to her death down a flight of stairs, a spectral bride, a ghostly sea captain run down by a carriage in front of the building and a civil war soldier whose voice has been heard singing in various parts of the establishment during the early hours.
