During the war a portion of the inn was used to store firearms and provisions for the militia.
Another section was the office of Dr. Wounded soldiers were brought to his office during the battle, many of them not surviving their injuries, lending truth to the many encounters. The inn was also home to American author Henry David Thoreau while attending college. It was later turned into boarding house, before it became a hotel called the Thoreau House. The building was converted into an inn in and has been in operation since then, playing host to several famous guests including Franklin D.
Roosevelt, Shirley Temple and Bruce Springsteen. While conducting an EVP session, attempting to get the resident ghosts to speak to us on our digital recorders, a lacy doily flew off the back of a chair and landed on my head, surprising me. If you stay at the inn hoping to envelope yourself in history, you might get more than you bargained for as the history envelopes you back.
To reserve your own haunted room, visit their website at: The paranormal activity is so frequent in the Chapman Inn, the owners brought in a paranormal investigator to dig deeper into the haunting. Several ghosts were in residence, including the soul of Abigail Chapman, the invalid daughter of William Rogers Chapman, the man who originally built the house.
Being born with an infliction, her father hired a live-in nanny to care for her. Since Abigail was unable to leave the house, the nanny became her only friend. When she died at the age of sixteen, some say her soul never left the house. Staff and guests often experience cold drafts in otherwise warm rooms, unexplained footsteps in vacant areas, and lights that go on and off on their own accord.
Guests have been startled by whispered voices uttered breathlessly close to their ears. One guest, in particular, had a frightening encounter. She came into her room and was surprised to find a woman wearing a white nightgown standing in her room. Perhaps one of the more startling hauntings is the mysterious appearance of a black cat.
For more information, please visit their website: Rooms 7 and 9. Like everyone else in Massachusetts, and possibly the world, I knew the story of how Andrew and Abby Borden were brutally murdered with a hatchet in their Fall River home during the summer of While many felt that his daughter Lizzie committed the murder, she was acquitted of the murder and was allowed to live out her life in a nearby home in Fall River.
For decades, guests and staff have repeatedly seen apparitions moving about the house as though caught in a time warp. One guest came into her room to discover a women dressed in period clothing making her bed.
She blinked, wondering if it was a member of the staff until the apparition faded away to nothing. Others have encountered touches and pushes. During my visit at the inn, I encountered very little for the first half of the night. I was beginning to wonder if the inn was truly haunted or not. As my group sat in the room that once belonged to Bridget, the maid, I had an experience that would leave me shaking my head. One of the investigators turned on his digital recorder, only to discover that his battery had died. The decor and furnishings are very old fashioned, yet it goes hand in hand with the historic value of this area.
This place has been around for about years and tell me not one person died in this building, I was concerned about hauntings. After a little googling I discovered some people were offset about some happenings, but is it true? We asked the front desk, their answer was no. We slept just fine, nothing happened. If anyone has any stories though, do tell: However it probably would have been better to have spent my money on a cheap motel, because I feel like thats what I got.
Not worth a hundred dollars. Second time I've stayed here. No portion of the interior of this hotel is straight any more. Its got character and the staff is super friendly. Can't depend on internet connection; it was on and off frequently.backtribwormietram.gq/map31.php
But then again, that shouldn't even be that big of a deal in a place like this. This is one of those hotels that some people will love, others should avoid. It's a very historic building, built in , which means sloping floors, no elevator, and various weird features that I found charming but others might not. My room in what I think is the newer -- but still pretty old -- wing was quite small with a pedestal sink in the room, giving it kind of a boarding house feel.
But it had everything you need, bathroom very basic but strong hot shower. The public spaces are pretty interesting - lots of little conversation nooks with antique-looking furniture.

Go and meet George, the friendly ghost who loves to play pranks on the innkeepers. In fact, the innkeepers became so familiar with this ghost who appears in a cloak and wide brimmed hat, that it was them who named him George. Well, they had to call him something!
