The Addy Sea Inn
Today, the Addy-Sea Inn is a thriving bed and breakfast on Delaware’s Bethany Beach. Built in 1902 by Pittsburg plumber John Addy, the Addy-Sea was originally meant to be the family homestead. However, a string of circumstances ensured that the house would eventually become a vacation destination.
In the 1920s, the Addy-Sea had to be relocated twice to different lots due to the threat of storm surge damage associated with its beachfront location. Then, it the 1930s, the Depression was hitting the whole country hard. To make ends meet, the Addy family began renting out rooms to church groups. From there, it grew into a bed and breakfast, with the Gravattes taking over the home and the business in the 1970s.
There are three main guest rooms that are said to be haunted, in addition to all the other paranormal things that happen throughout the inn.
Room 1-Room 1 is one of the most interesting of the haunted rooms. Its private bath contains the original copper tub that John Addy brought with him from Pittsburg. Bathers have been more than startled to find the tub start violently shaking with them in it.
Room 6-This room has hauntingly beautiful organ music playing in it.
Room 11-This is the room haunted by Paul Dulaney, a former handyman for the Addy’s and local swim star. Although Paul died out of state on a construction job, his spirit has found its way back to the Addy-Sea. His apparition has been seen sitting on the bed or standing by it.
Even if you don’t get to book a haunted room, you still have the opportunity to experience the paranormal activity of the Addy-Sea Inn. The Addy’s wild son, Kurtz, died in a tragic accident when he fell off the roof of the home. Footsteps emanating from the roof are said to be his, and he also makes his presence known by running through the halls in the evenings. Kurtz also makes his presence known by materializing his obituary out of nowhere, throughout the inn.
Other activity runs the entire gamut of haunting criteria: strange sounds and music, lights flickering on and off, mechanical issues, including an answering machine that turns itself on, and people getting locked in their own closets.
The Deer Park Tavern
It was once a place where slaves were sold, it was a seminary, a bar/hotel, and a brothel before ultimately becoming a college and local hangout in Newark. Staff is uneasy at night, and many closing managers do not like to be in the building alone. Bar stools have been captured by security cameras flying off the bar, noises have been heard in the stair wells, and many individuals get the creepy sensation that someone is behind them even though they know they are alone.
Camp Arrowhead is a de-centralized, residential summer camp affiliated with the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware. There are lots of spooky campfire stories about various areas around camp, but the most interesting story surrounds the Rec Hall. This building is used to store all the camping gear and recreational items staffers and campers use throughout the summer. It was once a dance hall in Lewes, Delaware and was floated across Rehoboth Bay to where it stands now. Staffers have reported seeing every light on in the Rec Hall, long after everyone has gone to bed. The sounds of music and laughter can be heard, even though the building is empty.
Fort Delaware was used as a Civil War prison for Confederate soldiers, and is one of the most actively haunted locations in Delaware. Situated on Pea Patch Island, the only way to get there is via ferry. It is now part of the Delaware State Park system, and there are ghost tours available through October. A female apparition was captured on camera walking through a wall in the Officer’s Kitchen. It is believed it is the same woman who has been known to address people by name, angrily telling them to “get out!” TAPS researchers captured shocking activity when they filmed their Ghost Hunters Halloween Special last October. It is impossible to go and not feel as if some serious stuff happened there and maybe is about to happen. It is definitely a place worth visiting for its historical significance as well as for the potential to get the scare of a lifetime. X
