No One Else is Here
I was in the Pettibone Tavern / Chart House as it was called. My father was a part owner. so we were there alone on a weekend. We could here someone walking upstairs. When my Dad came out of the kitchen, we asked him who was walking around upstairs. He told us, "There is no one else here." We left without investigating further.Posted 2/16/21
OLd Chart House is really haunted!
All the stories seem to ski over the fat that when Chart House bought the Inn, they found all the original paintings of Abigail stacked in the basement with the head areas of the paintings cut out... Later they found the pieces cut out in a drawer and had them re-attached. Today you can see where the paintings were cut out then returned. in 1992 I was on a job in Hartford and spent several evenings at the restaurant/bar Chart House. One snowy night I was sitting at the bar on the 2nd floor with three people, only a couple of tables dining because of the foul weather. After hearing the stories from the bartender we were talking when a man came to the bartender and said "I don't want to start any trouble, but there's a woman in the Men's Room" which happens to be where the original bedroom of the home was and the site of Abigail's murder! After a laugh I got ready to leave and couldn't find my glove... no one had moved and we all looked around the floor and couldn't find it. Two minutes later I looked on the ground and there it was! Very visible, no way to miss it. time to go home!Posted 8/1/20
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
