The five-story Victorian Mizpah Hotel, built in 1907, is believed to be haunted by a few of the prostitutes from its early days. A Lady in Red may be the most famous, known to touch men’s hair or brush against them. According to the stories told here, she was beaten and strangled here by a jealous ex. Her perfume lingers in the halls, and sometimes her ghost is seen talking to a miner’s ghost. A greenish-blue ghostly woman and several men are also seen here, but quickly vanish. Another story is sold here of a politician who died in a room on election night. The body was kept on ice in the bathtub, waiting for election results to make the announcement, which may explain the man’s apparition that has been seen laughing near the hotel’s bathtubs. In the hotel’s basement, several miners’ apparitions have been spotted.
