The main floor includes a kitchen, a parlour, and a barroom. Like today, the kitchen was the heart of the home, always busy with work. The variety of household tools provides a hint of the action that took place here. Cooking, cleaning, churning butter, hauling water, making candles, preserves, washing clothes and more. Food must have always been cooking. The large dough box in the corner would have been used almost every day. There once was a summer kitchen attached to the Star Inn so that cooking and baking would not overheat the entire building. The parlour is home to a beautiful pump organ which could be used to entertain guests. The bar is believed to be one of the oldest in Eastern Ontario. Only men were allowed in the bar, and they were not allowed to serve on Sunday. The bar is still licensed and used for special events (even the odd Sunday). On the top floor, there are two private bedrooms for guests, the innkeepers' room attached to a children's room, and a common room. The common room was very versatile: it was used for church services, various gatherings, and sometimes the floor was slept on by travelers for a reduced rate.
Over the half century that the museum has been interpreting this building there have been multiple reports of spirits in this building. Several Curators over the years have had visitors report a very similar story of a stern woman "spirit" upstairs at the Inn. One such individual who gave this report absolutely refused to go upstairs and was visibly disturbed by her encounter.
The Star Inn is home to many interesting artifacts including a dumb stove, an alcohol proofing kit, and a small melodian (type of pump organ). With its original windows and doors, ghostly rumours, and interesting history, it is a must-see when visiting the Glengarry Pioneer Museum. With this rich history and multitude of artifacts within, it is no wonder the Star Inn is Trevor Stanton's favorite artifact.
