Shepherdstown's Historic Carriage House Cafe

The historic Carriage House Cafe and Tea Room was built in 1900 as a repair and construction shop servicing horse-drawn carriages.  Over the years, the space has been home to an interior decorator, a mortgage lender, and an artist...all of who strived to maintain the historical integrity of the building over the years. 

Opening in November of 2007, the Carriage House Cafe offers excellent lunch specials, and traditional English high tea service.  Each month, a different artist is featured in the cafe's gallery spaces.  In addition to good food and good art, the owners, Robert Myers and Carolyn Robel-Litack, also claim that a resident ghost is included in the experience!  Apparently, the ghost of a former occupant of the Carriage House has decided to stick around.  If you've had an experience with, or have more information on this ghostly resident, I'd love to hear it!
