This 1880s hotel building is said to be haunted. One ghost, called Elizabeth, wears a long dress and often carries a parasol. Reports say she is most often seen on the stairs on Mondays at about 3 a.m. She is said to have fallen down the stairs to her death. Another spirit believed to be here is a young girl about 10 years old who looks through the glass doors toward the restaurant. A third apparition spotted here is that of a gambling man who walks in the upstairs halls. He is thought to be either a man who committed suicide in the lobby in the 1940s or another man who was killed in the 1930s during a poker game on the third floor.
