Stories are just that. Stories and personal accounts that have been reported about the location.

While we were on a guest tour, we learned about the spirit that is said to haunt the 1863 Inn. The spirit is believed to be a former employee and handyman named George who likes to play pranks on the staff at the hotel as well as some of the guests. The tour guide whet on to say that he was most active on the fifth floor. Some have reported that he likes to move things in their room, turn lights on/off, turn on the TVs in the middle of the night, and even lock them out of their rooms.
