At this 1800s building, a murder is said to have led to the haunting that occurs here. The place was a tavern until the 1850s, and so the legend says, a stagecoach driver was murdered and beheaded here in a 1820s robbery. Although there were bloodstains on the floor and in many other places in the room, the man’s body was not found…. at least, not right away. In 1922 when the inn was remodeled, construction workers unearthed a headless skeleton that had been buried in the limestone floor. Although the body was buried, the inn is said to be haunted by the unhappy spirit of the murdered man.
