History tells us that Miss Kitty Knight was a courageous woman that became a hero in her own right. During the War of 1812 the British were burning everything in their path, when they came to Kitty’s house she refused to allow it. Kitty was taking care of her elderly neighbor, who was unable to flee the house.
Kitty Knight stayed in the house running around putting out the fires that the British set. Finally, she won the sympathy of Admiral Cockburn and they did not burn her house.
Since then it is said the house is haunted. There have been reports of doors opening and closing on their own and a rocking chair that rocks on its own.
The Kitty Knight House is open for weddings; here the bride and groom can enjoy the beautiful waterfront, and outstanding food.
There are 11 rooms available for guests, there is a no pet policy, and due to the age of the building the rooms are not handicapped accessible.
