According to hauntedrooms, this Victorian home was built in 1907 by the Houghton family and it was their personal residence. The Houghton’s were survived by their 12 children, but one of them died after being given the wrong medicine for whooping cough. Eventually, the family moved away and the house was transformed into a funeral parlor in the 1920s.
The front entrance of the house has an embalming table and it was once used in the kitchen when the house was formerly used as a funeral parlor. The guests and employees of the inn have reported seeing apparitions in the mirror inside a suite. The apparition is said to be the wandering spirit of the former owner, Mr. Houghton. The upstairs hallway of the inn has had many EMF ratings where voices and whisperings were heard by many guests. Numerous reports of hauntings have been narrated by people who have visited this inn. Curious visitors from all over the country, too, visit the place to experience the supernatural. Guests at the inn have apparently noticed things being moved around in their rooms, apparitions of children playing and jumping on beds, and claims of being "tucked" in when there was not a soul in sight.
