Mineral Point, Wisconsin


Walker House Inn

Many believe this old structure to be haunted.  Numerous reports have come from the people who have ventured inside:

"This log inn, built in 1836, is haunted by a murderer who was hanged in front of it. On November 1, 1842, William Caffee was hanged from a scaffold erected in the yard of the inn. Before a crowd of 4,000 people, the contemptuous man rode atop his own coffin and, using two beer bottles, drummed a funeral march on the sides of the casket. Afterwards, his cantankerous spirit took up residence in Walker House, and over 150 years later, his ghost still walks the halls. Employees and guests complain of the scary sounds of heavy breathing, footsteps on the second floor, and a presence who turns doorknobs but never opens doors. Scary voices and poltergeist activity frequently occur in the main dining room and kitchen. In October 1981, owner Walker Calvert saw Caffee's headless ghost sitting on a bench on the back porch. The phantom stayed visible for several minutes. That same month, a waitress saw the ghost, this time with a head, walking on the second floor."

(Mineral Point is in Iowa County in the southwestern corner of Wisconsin, at the junction of U.S. Hwy 151 and Hwy. 23. Walker  House Inn has been open and closed to the public numerous times over the last several decades.)
