The Jailers Inn was the local jail from 1819 to 1987, housing criminals like notorious bank robber John Dillinger, and was converted into a quaint B&B in 1988.
According to owner Paul McCoy, around 20 legal executions took place on the lawn of the old jail, which has made the building a hotbed for criminal ghost activity.
He says, Its common to hear voices, footsteps upstairs even though no ones up there, and see flickering lights. Some guests have even seen a woman and two boys in one of the rooms.
Guests are told the haunted B&Bs history over breakfast, but never before bed because some have been known to run out in the middle of the night in fear.
Those hoping for an authentic prison experience can do time in the Jail Cell room, which has most of the original furniture from its jailhouse days, and allows innmates to sleep on a prison cot.
