It's no secret that our town holds a treasure trove of historically influential places. Pope's Tavern was once a tavern and inn, and later, it served as a military hospital for both Confederate and Union soldiers during the Civil War.
I always get an odd feeling when entering this structure. It's as though the air hangs heavy....inhabited by memories of times gone by, restless spirits, and a lingering sense of sadness.
**Little Known Ashley Fact: I'm really frightened by dummies....of the mannequin variety. You know, plastic people. Not when they are in department stores modeling clothes, of course. But, in settings like the one you see above, they really creep me out. I often times can't even be in the room with a dummy. Oooh, they give me heebie-jeebies. Maybe I'm afraid that they'll suddenly come to life. That would really be scary.
Do you have any irrational fears?
