Tour a Haunted Restaurant

Old 76 House

In September 1780 British Major John André was captured by American soldiers near Tarrytown, New York. The soldiers found in André’s possession papers related to the surrender of West Point to the British, so he was arrested as a spy and taken to the Continental Army Headquarters. Shortly thereafter, he was imprisoned at a tavern in Tappan, New York, and was tried, convicted, and hanged within the week.

That tavern is now the Old 76 House restaurant (and where my wife and I got engaged many years ago), and people have reported unexplained noises and falling glasses, leading some to believe that otherworldly guests reside there. And now you have an opportunity to see for yourself on a Ghost Hunt USA tour. Their website states that “many voices, full blown apparitions have been experienced and witnessed coming from rooms were no-one is in situ and many guests have been touched and many have felt the cold spells that simply come and go.”

You can get more info at   If you decide to check it out on your own, make sure to see Table Two (the area where André was imprisoned); you may hear falling glasses or feel extremely cold, so beware…
