This 1927 historic hotel is one of the most haunted in the state, but unusually, the ghosts of this inn tend to be relatively inactive apart from during the winter months. A visiting medium stated that up to thirteen ghosts inhabit the building, proving that the hotel is immensely popular with the spirit set. According to a guidebook, Room #002 is the most popular, with strange poltergeist activity being attributed to a mischievous spirit. Among the other ghosts reported are a man and woman in period clothing, a young girl looking for her mother, a prostitute strangled in the main banquet room, a worker who appeared on several occasions in the basement and a mysterious blue light that floats through an upstairs hallway.
