Dubbed "The Finest Brick Hotel in Ontario County", The Naples Hotel was built in 1895 by Jeff. R. Brown. The Federal style building five bricks thick walls, three stories, Victorian Dining Rooms, a tap room and bar area, antique claw foot bathtubs, bay windows and five available rooms (Delaware, Catawba, Sake, Cabernet and Niagara).
The hotel is known for its fine dining and accommodations as well as a few famous visitors. Back when Senator Robert Kennedy was the U. S. Attorney General, he made a visit to Naples, New York and gave a speech from the front porch of the Naples Hotel. Another well known visitor was radio News Commentator Paul Harvey. One possible former guest is making a name for himself....from the afterlife.
In the 1920s, a man supposedly hung himself on the third floor. Named after a character in a '30s or '40s movie, "Topper" is believed to haunt the hotel. During TAPS investigation, they were unable to verify "Topper's" existence. Of course, the lack of records doesn't mean it never happened. Either way, there are reports of voices, objects moving or being thrown, pictures suddenly becoming crooked on their own, shadow figure, and a male spirit in period clothing.
