Long ago, a woman was brutally murdered in this hotel. Since that time, there have been strange occurrences. It is said that late at night, the woman may be heard walking up and down the halls. It is also said that she knocks on the doors of rooms. When guests go to open their doors, there is nothing there but a cool breeze.
This house is said to be haunted by two different ghosts. One man appears to be the present owner's father. He has allegedly been seen holding his great-granddaughter in an upstairs window. A grayish-smoke like figure has also been reported to pass through people in the home's kitchen. As the basement was being renovated, an unexplained swastika was found built into the linoleum floor. There were also large amounts of very old ammunition located in the ceiling.
In 1972, the foundation for this house was being dug, when an old navy duffel bag was found. It was reported to have belonged to Captain Tomas VerPlange, whose house was on the property during the mid 1700's. The bag contained faded photo albums, wooden navigation tools, and a pipe. Since that time, a knocking sound has been heard many nights on the door of a bedroom on the lower level. One, a occupant of the room went outside after the knocking, only to see a ghostly figure walking away.
