General Wayne Inn - Real Haunt in Merion Station PA
This inn dates back to 1704 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The building, which was named for General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, is said to be haunted by a number of spirits. Witnesses have reported seeing spirits of a Hessian soldier, a British officer in search of a locket, and that of Edgar Allan Poe, who stayed at the inn frequently. Poltergeist activity and screams have also been reported here and the location was featured on TV's Unsolved Mysteries and Haunted History. Today, reports say the building is no longer an inn, but a synagogue and Jewish activity center.
