town is one big lodging, restaurant, and shop, offering different venues. It is one of the most
documented haunted locations in Indiana. There are no TVs, cable or telephones in the
rooms. Many stories include kitchen workers seeing apparitions and objects moving. The
most famous room of the inn is called the "Blue Lady Room". Apparently when the blue
light is turned on it summons the blue lady to appear. She appears in flowing white robes.
Starting in the mid 1970's, guest books were left for guest to make comments on their
visits. Many of the entries referred the blue lady ghost.

inn was restored in 1995, and improvements have been made continuously ever since.
Guests have reported seeing a little girl ghost, often observed late at night on the master
staircase. She has been noted to turn on the fireplace in guests rooms, and move objects
and belongings from their original positions. Sarah Ritter, an original inhabitant, and two of
her children, died in the home. Perhaps they are still wandering the familiar hallways.
