Real Haunted House

Deer Park Tavern

Newark, Delaware
By Lisa

Once a brothel, seminary, place where slaves were sold and a hotel (now a bar), The Deer Park Tavern in Newark, DE has a history of strange occurrences.  It is located on the former site of St. Patrick’s Inn.  George Washington and Edgar Allan Poe have been reported to have stayed here during that time.  One such tale is that after slipping in mud on the grounds of the inn, Poe cursed the joint.

Today, unexplained events include strange noises, doors opening and closing by themselves, bar stools flying across the room and an overall creepy sensation by some patrons at the bar have been reported.
