history, description of the establishment, sightings, dining and address w/ phone # and email.
I've never been to any of the establishments. Some look kind of pricey. I sometimes go to the establishments website for info & rates. Being skeptical, I wonder if there is an actual ghost(s) or is it a "come on".
The book is an enjoyable read.
There are some historical errors in this book that I hope will be corrected if there are any further printings. The author has a real problem with dates, especially those pertaining to the Civil War and these errors are grievous enough to cost the book a star. Having visited these places she writes about, her facts should have been more accurate.
Beyond the errors though this is one of the best ghost books I have read in quite some time. Kermeen's writing style is very good, especially for what I assume is her first book. Her stories are not old legends but are current and ongoing haunts and she gets the stories from living eyewitnesses. Written as part travel guide and part ghost story book, each chapter ends with a description of the Inn along with the address, phone number, email, and if applicable the web site of the property. There is also a section that tells the reader which rooms to stay in to be most likely to have a ghostly experience. There is also a section called, "Don't Miss" which includes some highlights of the town and especially the ghost tours that may be offered.Read more ›
