The Haunted Bar That’s Been Around Since Before Rhode Island Was Even A State

The White Horse Tavern is not only Rhode Island’s oldest bar, but it’s the oldest continuously operated restaurant in America. Since 1673, it has been a gathering place for everyone from our founding fathers to tourists and locals alike. Of course, a place with a building this old is bound to have some paranormal activity — and it does. The list of ghost stories here is longer than the cocktail menu.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Dining inside the White Horse Tavern will resume as soon as possible. And when it does, check it out for a scrumptious meal (and maybe a good scare).
