Black Bass Hotel
The Black Bass Hotel, built in the 1740s, has quite a few memorable spirits. HANS. In the early 1800s, a group of immigrant workers arrived to build the Delaware Canal. Hans, who owned the hotel at the time, got into a dispute with one of the canal workers,
which resulted in his being stabbed to death. The barstool on which he was sitting is still in the main tavern. Some have reported seeing a pool of blood on the tavern floor and others have seen him lurking near the spot where he was murdered. CANAL WORKERS. The men who died while working on the canal were placed in a small makeshift morgue off of the main tavern. Their bodies were stored there until a boat made its way down the Delaware to retrieve them. Over the years, this room has been known to have unexplained, rapid drops in temperature. Some have also reported hearing strange sobbing sounds emanating from the area and have experience feelings of being watched. WOMAN IN WHITE. Another famous ghost is a woman dressed in white who has been seen both wandering the halls of the Hotel and sitting in a guest room with a pearl handled revolver in her lap. According to legend, she found her husband and his mistress in one of the guest rooms. Distraught, she killed them and then turned the gun on herself. Guests who have seen her report that her presence is precipitated by the smell of lavender; some also experienced being overcome with sadness.

Aaron Burr House Bed and Breakfast
The Aaron Burr House Bed and Breakfast takes its name from the third Vice President of the United States. After Aaron Burr's infamous and fatal pistol duel with Alexander Hamilton in 1804, Burr escaped to New Hope for safe haven. The inn's stone foundation
is all that remains of the pre-Revolutionary War era home where Burr is said to have hid for over a week. Aaron Burr likes to visit the inn - his apparition has been seen walking up the staircase and through the second floor. Sometimes, Aaron Burr's ghost will tug on the clothes of guests he particularly likes to prevent them from leaving the inn.
At least eight ghosts have been reported at the Logan Inn. Many of the sightings have occurred in Room Number 6 or Emily's room, including seeing a man or two children in the bathroom mirror; feeling a pressure on the chest in the middle of the night;
seeing a white misty shape moving in the room; hearing crying; having pillows pulled from beneath guests' heads. In the lobby, a picture of a couple has been known to give off a lavender scent. Ghosts of soldiers have been seen near the steps of the men's room, hallways, guest rooms and cellar. Finally, a ghost of a little girl who fell off a nearby bridge and drowned has been seen in the parking lot.
New Hope Arts Center
The New Hope Arts Center used to be the home of the S. J. Gerenser Theater; the foundation of the building dates back to before the Revolutionary War. When S.J. Gerenser owned the theater building, he reported that there were spirit entities in the building.
These ghosts would take objects and after a long time the objects were often found in unusual locations. These spirits have been responsible for lights turning on and off at will, doors opening and closing by themselves, and unexplained footsteps. One ghost, dubbed, The Tripping Ghost, would push, pull, or hold onto the ankles of people who were climbing a ladder, sometimes causing them to fall.
The Inn at Phillips Mill
A female former owner of the inn has been seen all over the house, including the second floor hallway, and sitting in a rocking chair on the second floor. She sometimes wears a high-necked, white blouse, black skirt, and sturdy, leather boots, and has
her hair pinned on top of her head. She has a habit of brushing past people who are standing on the stairs; when she does this, people feel a cool mass that pushes them gently to one side.
