White Horse Tavern dates back to the 1600s, and is said to be haunted by several spirits including an elderly male in Colonial clothing, a guest who died on the premises and shows up in the dining room near a fireplace. He is said to prefer to appear female guests. Another entity is said to guard the building and supervise the staff, and a third ghost, a female, has been caught in a photo above one of the dining tables.
