Granville OH is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Buxton Inn. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.

The History

In 1812, a man named Orrin Granger built the structure. It had a courtyard for stagecoaches, a ballroom for social events. It also served as the very first post office in the area. Orrin passed away just six years later by some say his spirit remains.

Ethel Bounell bought the Inn in 1934 and remained the owner of the hotel until 1961.

By the 1970s, the building had fallen on tough times and there was talk of razing the old structure to create parking. Orville and Audrey Orr stepped in and purchased the Inn to save it. The Orr’s were the Inn’s caretakers until 2014.

The Hauntings

Reports of paranormal activity go as far back as 1829 when it is reported that the son of the man that owned the structure went downstairs after bedtime to locate a snack and saw Mr. Granger in the kitchen.

The ghost of another former owner, Ethel Bounell, is said to still be at the Inn. The staff calls her the Lady in Blue and they see her opening windows, moving items, and simply strolling in and around the building.

The Buxton Inn has its very own ghost cat. Several guests and employees at the Inn have observed a cat in various rooms of the Inn and he likes to just up on the bed in the front room of suite 9.

Shadows and whispers are often encountered in the dark corners of the Inn, particularly in the basement area, which is the tavern and some have seen an apparition of Major Buxton himself.
