ABOUT "DOBBIN HOUSE TAVERN"

The most important feature of this house is that it was a stopping point for slaves during the Underground Railroad. The slaves who stopped at the Dobbin house, on their way to freedom in Canada, generally hid in small, secret hiding places that were located under the floor and in the walls. Those hiding places, to this very day, are still in the Dobbin Inn for guests to see. The ghost of Alexander Dobbin, who founded the Inn, is still seen around the house smoking a cigar. People believe that the slaves who came to this house never really left. Apparitions of slaves have been spotted through out the house, even in the hiding places. It is believed that the soldiers who fought in the Battle of Gettysburg haunt the Inn. Guests and employees of the Inn have spotted mysterious, reoccurring blood stains on the floor boards. The Inn has been beautifully restored and is quite the tourist attraction. Their rooms are designed to fit the year it was built. Maybe that is why the ghosts linger in the hallways of this magnificent haunted house. Stay if you dare?
