The Phantoms of The Front Porch Cafe
The atmosphere at the cafe was lovely and it had been decorated to remain contemporary with the building. The wait time was terrible, but consdering it was one of the few decent restaurants in town, we adapted and waited. During the many times I ate there, I had no idea that the building was once used as a funeral parlor. The room where I sat cradling my youngest in my arms and eating French silk pie, had once been used for wakes. The room where the I had spent many pleasant afternoons with my lady friends had been used for embalming. The upstairs, where the sunlight poured in through the lace curtains onto hardwood floors had been used to house caskets.
All this darkness was a mystery to me when I dined there. I was unaware that the Front Porch Cafe was one of the most haunted places in Murfreesboro and that many visitors to this quaint cafe had reported seeing a young girl in a white dress haunting the building. Others had heard noises and seen lights. One visitor, who I spoke with on a ghost hunt, said she had captured the young girl on film.
