Built in the 1920s, urban legend states that every owner of this hotel has died under “strange circumstances” – often within the limits of the property. And we wouldn’t want the facts to get in the way of a good story. Other ghost stories abound of former visitors who’ve decided to never leave and remain in spectral form. It is said you can see the ghosts of those who died here peering out from the windows or roaming the courtyards. Although this hotel is on the National Registry of Historic Places, it is currently abandoned. Trespassers are prosecuted so don’t try your luck.
