George Washington dined at the tavern on April 22,
1790. The tavern building itself is long since gone. Only the cemetery
remains. Many unusual graves and obelisks are here. This cemetery is one of the oldest in Western
Suffolk County. Many graves date back to the 1600's. Also, some of the
most interesting and beautiful obelisk family markers are in this cemetery.
There have been numerous though unconfirmed reports over the years of glowing ghostly figures
seen moving through the field. The only confirmed encounter with a ghost at
this cemetery is from another paranormal group based on Long Island. The
story goes as they were investigating this site they felt some
and thought they saw something by one of the tombstones. When they went
over by the tombstone, they thought they saw a face in the stone looking at them!
But when they called other people over to look it had disappeared.
