BOO! Ghosts at the Chabbad house?

Forward( talks about a new chabbad housein a historical building in the Philadelphia suburb of Lower Merion.The building:General Wayne Inn,
a 300 year old landmark that supposedly houses the ghost of a Revolutionary War mercenary.

Legend has it that in 1777, a Hessian soldier known simply as Wilhelm was shot dead by a group of colonists. Since the ground was frozen, they couldn't bury him. Fearing retribution from the Redcoats, they hid the corpse in the building's cellar and fled. Wilhelm's ghost is said to inhabit the inn to this day.
