Located on Columbia Square is the jaw-dropping William Kehoe Historic Inn, a four-story, Victorian/Renaissance Revival mansion that now serves as a bed and breakfast. Interestingly, the home’s original owner came from meager beginnings and was reportedly not a “showy” person. He just wanted a home big enough to house his family, a home that is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. William Kehoe spent the majority of his time in the study, and there is often a light on in the room with no explanation. His wife Annie has been spotted in rooms 202 and 203 and roaming the halls of the third floor. As the Kehoes were gentle and kind people, guests report that the ghosts are fairly pleasant, if a bit shocking. Check in and check it out for yourself.
