The Spirits of '76: Looking into the Alleged Haunting of the General Wayne Inn


The General Wayne Inn, located in southeastern Pennsylvania, has a rich history that extends all the way back to the beginning of the 18th century. It has hosted a number of guests, including some who played notable roles in the American colonial struggle for independence (for which the "4th of July" holiday is observed in the United States). It's also long been said that the inn is inhabited by ghosts which seem to reflect that particular period of conflict in American history. Could there be anything to this claimed haunt? Back in August of 1988, the popular TV show Unsolved Mysteries, hosted by the late Robert Stack, had aired a segment that profiled the inn and its alleged haunting. Not long ago, a slightly re-edited version of that original segment reappeared as part of a recent reboot of the show (now hosted by actor Dennis Farina) and is available to view on YouTube:

An article which takes a closer look at her investigation, as well as the ghostly reports at the inn, can be viewed by clicking on the link below (the file is in Adobe PDF format):
