Gage Hotel was built in the 1920s by Alfred Gage, who died less than a year after it was finished. The hotel is believed to be haunted by Mr. Gage himself. Witnesses have described apparitions on the front porch, in the patio gardens or in the hallways, and Room 10 is said to be especially active. Music, a woman’s voice reading poetry, and taps on the shoulder have been experienced by guests there.

  1. my wife and i stayed there feb 2007
    second floor our room over looked the roof of lower floor do not recall room number
    but it had a bathroom.
    we always burn a candle during vacation and that morning before day lite wallet glasses
    were covered in wax. the candle was still no in the center of the table and there was no trail of wax
    it was as if the candle was held and tilted over all my stuff???????????
    my wife and i have discussed this several times and one fact neather one of us did it

  2. Room 3, one of the original rooms of the hotel my girlfriend and I were staying and in the middle of the night my phone was going off and acting crazy, we were hearing all types of knocking noises and voices, we also got a video of something knocking on the door of the famous room ten while no one is there! I’m currently writing this while in room 3 because I can’t sleep now lol. But it’s cool B)

  3. While unaware of the room’s reputation, my daughters and I stayed in room #10. My youngest daughter woke up in the early morning hours with one of the large paintings on her chest. It was securely attached to the wall and we still have no idea how it ended up on top of her in the middle of the night. We thought it was strange, but didn’t think too much of it. On the drive home I googled the hotel and was shocked to read about the hotel’s reported hauntings , esp with #10!
