Built in 1837, the historic hotel was fully renovated in 1997. Frank and Jesse James were frequent, sometimes long-term, guests at the hotel. Among other spirits, the ghost of Jesse James is said to reside here, a male apparition in 1880s cowboy garb. Jesse’s girlfriend Lucinda has been seen here as well, along with a waft of lavender scent. Even Jesse’s dog has been heard barking on the premises, and running around upstairs.
