Garfield Furniture - Grand Avenue Hotel

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Garfield Furniture - Grand Avenue Hotel

The 1898 Grand Avenue Hotel, now a furniture store, is possibly haunted by the apparition of John Wilkes Booth. He stayed at the hotel in 1903, and committed suicide through strychnine poisoning under the pseudonym David E. George. The owners of the place say that the room he died in is still haunted by his spirit to this day, and the haunting has been documented on several television shows.

  1. While traveling home from Enid, OK after a recent visit with relatives, we drove past the Garfield Furniture store on Grand Avenue where David E. George, A.K.A.John Wilkes Booth died by suicide. As we passed the building around 5:30 that Sunday afternoon (not typical hours of operation for a downtown store) I observed the curtain of the front third floor room (a former hotel room) move to one side and saw an upper body apparition of a man peaking outside toward Grand Avenue, the North-South street running in front of the now furniture store. The light-gray cloud-like apparition was obvious.
    I’m not sure in which room J.W.B. actually died, but think it was that front corner room. Please verify with the Garfield furniture owner. Thank you.
