The Tavern - Real Haunt in Abingdon VA
The Tavern Restaurant was established in 1994, but the building it occupies dates all the way back to 1779. Diners and staff alike agree that the place is haunted, reporting phantom footsteps and objects moving on their own. One of the ghosts who inhabit the restaurant has been nicknamed “The Tavern Tart;” she is believed to have been a prostitute who was murdered by a client and has been known to stare at men from the window as they cross the street or pinch them on the rear once they’ve entered the Tavern.
