The original Grist Mill was built in 1699, then a flood washed away the building completely in the 1700s. Reconstruction began in 1751 and the mill has stood ever since. It has been reported that there have been sightings of a man in colonial clothing appear and then vanish, and others have heard screaming on the grounds.
Originally a home and farm, the property was used during the American Revolution to house British troops. It is told that Annette Williamson was left in the home while her family was gone and the British took it over. The town then branded her as a spy and killed her. To this day, legend has it that she is buried in a small grave on the property. She is now said to haunt the kitchen and stairway, crying out, messing with light blubs and moving objects to gain attention of guests.

Since reopening, visitors have reported cold spots in the library and felt as though they were being watched. There have also been reports of soldiers walking about the facility and vanishing into thin air.
Now a popular bar, the location served as a hospital in the late 19th century. The hospital burned to the ground in 1909. In the 1920s during Prohibition, the property was converted to a speakeasy, local Charlie Klein worked there as a bartender and bootlegger before killing himself. Now the spirits of the hospital and speakeasy are said to inhabit Katie’s with figures wandering the bar, jumping to the basement stairs, banging noises in a vacant bathroom and footsteps. Guests have also been seen flying abruptly off tables and chairs.
