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

The tavern plays host to the specter of an unhappy old woman. Dressed in mourning garb, a black hoop skirt, bonnet and veil, the tiny, frail woman appears in the back corner of the main dining room. She never speaks or moves. She simply glares at the customers. Her outfit would have been old-fashioned even in 1900 when the Harmar opened. Her identity and reason for being in the tavern are a complete mystery.

Building owners go to great lengths to preserve period details and to recreate the charming atmosphere of the past. A few locations, however, have a bit more historic authenticity than their owners intended. These buildings are haunted. The Buckley House, now an elegant restaurant, was built as a private residence
