25 Haunted New England inns
The completely unconfirmed legend of the spirit at the Inn at Lafayette is a tragic tale. According to staff, the inn building was originally a church whose pastor was involved in an illicit romance with a North Madison woman. When his paramour went public with the affair, police put the pastor under house arrest in an upstairs room, now guest quarters similar to the one pictured. Faced with the betrayal of his lover, and the repercussions of his socially untenable affair, the pastor hung himself.
His spirit, called George, is said to remain in the house and previous Inn owners received reports from guests about a presence. However, the current staff has never seen anything unusual, nor have recent guests complained of unexplained incidents.
