An Inn Complete With Ghosts

Located in the southwest corner of Maine is the town of Kennebunk. In this town you will find a lovely, historic inn at 45 Main St. It was built in 1799 and has 3 stories and 22 rooms. It was originally built as a private home for Dr. Phineas Cole and his family becoming an inn in the late 1920s then called “The Tavern.” It got its present name in 1940 when Walter Day bought it and named it the “Kennebunk Inn.” The inn was sold again in 1980 to Arthur LeBlanc who added 6 more rooms.

The manifestations that have occurred here have been odd to say the least. Customers witnessed a most unusual thing when a waiter carrying a tray of wine suddenly (as we have often seen in the movies) saw a glass rise off of the tray and crash to the floor as if deliberately thrown down. Goblets from behind the bar have been known to move and fly across the room not held by human hands. One evening a bartender was hit on the side of his head by a flying hand carved German mug. Silverware has messed itself up and chairs have moved by themselves.

An author who writes ghost stories about Maine, Mr. Cahill came to stay at the inn with 3 friends. They wanted to solve the mystery of the haunting. During the night one of Mr. Cahill’s friends was kept awake all night by a moaning, raspy voice while another friend getting out of bed early in the morning felt a cold spot around his legs and quickly got back into bed.

Who might the ghostly deed doer be? There are many different ideas. One of them is that it might be a Silas Perkins who owned the place in the 18th century while others put the blame on Cyrus a night clerk who worked there for many years. There was a gentleman who had lived at the inn during the WWII period and had known Cyrus. He said that his desk had been in a room which was to be found directly above an unfinished staircase leading from the cellar to the ceiling. A waitress who had psychic tendencies had had the name Cyrus pop into her head as she was passing this staircase. Whoever it is who's doing the haunting seems to be quite comfortable at the inn with no plans to leave.
