K-104 Radio Station at Smalley’s Inn

Halloween is in the air for sure!  This morning, on my way back home after dropping off my daughter at New Fairfield High School, Radio Station K-104 was airing Live from a Haunted place.  I wasn’t sure where – until I heard them say Smalley’s


I recently had lunch at Smalley’s Inn ~CLICK ~ which is located in Carmel, NY – with my 2 Realtor friends, Susan and Carolyn.  The owner, Tony, gracious allowed me to take a few pictures and showed me his album full of photos and articles of peculiar sightings in his restaurant.

HPIM1777                                           Do you see an orb in the mirror under the chandelier?

Originally built in 1883 and then rebuilt in 1924 after a fired burned the Inn to the ground.  Many sightings have been noted.  One of which is of a young child, which is believed to be Elizabeth Smalley, daughter of the original owner, James Smalley


Elizabeth died when she was a young child and recently her tombstone was found in the basement where many witnesses have felt their clothes being tugged on and have seen ghostly figures.  It is also said that James Smalley was also the sheriff and coroner of the town and that the morgue was located in the Inn’s basement.


During Halloween, Tony goes all out – decorating Smalley’s – adding to the SPOOOKINESS!  To see – and feel – for yourself – Smalley’s Inn – 57 Gleneida Avenue – Carmel, NY 10512 – Phone: 845-225-9874
