Is The White Horse Tavern Haunted?
In 1673, The Whitehorse Tavern opened its doors in the Rhode Island Colony making it the oldest bar in the country. Throughout the centuries, the tavern has been used as a boarding house and British military quarters during the Revolutionary War. It’s no surprise that with all the activity in the tavern over the years, several ghosts have been seen by guests. A poplar spirit being an elderly man who died while renting a room above the bar in the early years of The Whitehorse Tavern. Another is a young girl who can be heard wailing on the second floor.
