Situated in historic downtown Bethlehem, the Sun Inn is a location that has hosted the Continental Congress and the Six Nations Confederation - and seen battles between colonists and the British, and with American Indians.

And because of all the history that has taken place around the famous landmark, the Inn is reported to have some guests who refuse to leave ... Even after their death.

During its time, the Sun Inn marked the northern edge of town in the Moravian settlement, which made it a welcome sight from all directions as people came into the area. It was known throughout the American colonies for its commitment to gracious service, fine food and wines, and its comfortable suites of rooms. But the Inn was also surrounded by intrigue as legends of underground tunnels and chambers were told - and continue to persist to this day.

No longer hosting guests, the Inn now serves as a living museum and is an authentic architectural restoration of the original building.


  • After more than 250 years of history, paranormal researchers would not be surprised to hear that the Sun Inn has become a locale supposedly brimming with ghostly activity.
  • Just some of the few in the areas where you'll investigate include:

The Basement: 

  • An energy vortex is said to affect electronic equipment - and disorient sensitive people!
  • A full-bodied apparition is said to have been seen guarding the entrance to the alleged tunnel system

The First Floor: 

  • An "entity" was reported in the chair next to a fireplace
  • A photo was captured that allegedly shows the face of a dedicated volunteer who had died

The Second Floor:

  • Disembodied voices and footsteps have been heard
  • Strange light anomalies were reported
  • Apparitions of uniformed soldiers and women in period clothing may have been seen

The Attic:

  • Shadow people may have been seen
  • An ominous feeling of being watched was reported
  • "Something" has been known to stare out of a back window
