I recently returned from a trip to Ohio to visit relatives. One of our day trips was to Granville, Ohio where we lunched, walked around, and visited the Buxton Inn which is supposed to be haunted. We were a large group of 10 and we were all looking forward to seeing the Inn.
When we walked in, we all went our separate ways to explore the many rooms. The Inn was busy with visitors and people having lunch. I walked around the gift shop, and the dining rooms, then decided to go downstairs to the Tavern. I walked down the steep set of stairs which led to the middle of the Tavern. I was the only person down there and I stood at the bottom of the stairs taking in the room and its history. I imagined all the people who must have had a drink there through the ages.
Then, all of a sudden, I felt extremely nauseous and faint. My heart was pounding and I broke out into a cold sweat. I climbed the stairs and sat down on the bench in the entryway and within a few minutes I felt fine. I turned to my husband and told him that I thought I had just had a paranormal experience.
I can't explain what happened to me. I wasn't sick from my lunch, I wasn't feeling anxious or afraid. I remember walking through the front door of the Inn and just feeling open to whatever was there. This feeling that I experienced just swept over me and was gone as fast as it came.
My question is: has anyone had an experience like this one? Is it paranormal? Is it a ghost passing through me?
Any input would be appreciated.
