The Veranda of the house - where a ghostly woman asks for a table and then disappears!

Beyond the former bedrooms and the parlor, and facing the street, is the old veranda of the house. This area was once the perfect place for the family to sit and watch the world go by on busy Broadway Street. In the summer months, it was used as a place for entertaining and as a sleeping room for the children. In those days before air conditioning, the sleeping porch would have offered a welcome respite during hot weather. It is in this area of the house, where the most famous ghost of the McMackin place appears.

 This phantom appears to be an ordinary customer and she comes into the house and requests a table for one from the hostess. She then either stands near the door or seats herself on a bench that is next to the door.
 

 When the hostess returns, or even looks up from her seating chart, she always finds that the woman has vanished. Staff members here believe that this lovely young spirit may be the ghost of Mary Belle Wells, the wife of Omar McMackin, who died after her hair caught fire in 1915.
