This piece by "special writer" Gundella seems a little out of place and different from the other ghost stories she wrote. While the others seem more prosaic and literary this reads like a normal newspaper article. I'm not sure if she was transitioning from columnist to special assignments at this juncture but it surely didn't hurt the piece at all as it is rather well-researched and written.
The restaurant itself has gone through several changes since this appeared in the Farmington Observer on October 29, 1984 and you can read about that and other historical information here.
