Abigail’s Grille and Bar - Pettibone Tavern - Real Haunt in Simsbury CT
For almost 200 years, this 1780 building was known as the Petitbone Tavern. It now operates as Abigail's. The location is rumored to be haunted by Mrs. Abigail Petitbone. According to local legend, her husband wasn't around too much, so Abigail began a romantic affair with another man. Her husband one day came home to find her with her new lover and he killed the two of them with an ax. Her spirit has been seen by both visitors and employees, mostly near the second-floor ladies' bathroom. Others believe that the ghost that lingers the place is not Abigail, but that of a young child.

Picture shook near hostess
My father was using the bathroom upstairs. I was waiting in the lobby area. The picture shook on the wall. We all ran out. Dad yelled something about monogrammed towels!Posted 3/26/16
