    1. I 100% KNOW its Haunted! Never told anything about it and I got the shocker of my life (never told anything about it being haunted nor even gave it a thought) I seen lots and lots of shadow people all watching me as I was preparing to give a slide show presentation! Something I will never forget!

    2. It is an Inn built in 1799. It is now owned by the Cornerstone Masonic Historic Society and they so private tours for ghost investigators. The fee they charge is fax deductible so why not arrange for a ghost hunt of your own? Email me for details at

    3. I can 100% vouch that this building has some pretty serious energy. I grew up in Monroe and my girl scout troop meetings were in this building. One of the badges is to stay overnight in a historic building and seeing as this is a historic Mason’s lodge so we spent the night here. We went to parts of the house that were blocked off but didn’t make it too far because we were all scared half to death.
