This hotel, built in the late 19th century, is known to have more than a few haunts as a result of some grisly historic facts. It is said that when the hotel’s foundation was laid, many human skeletons were unearthed. And the small horse corral is said to be on the site of the first post cemetery. Rumor has it that not all the bodies were recovered when the cemetery was moved to its new location.
Another interesting fact: The Grand Hotel provided one of the settings for the 1980 film “Somewhere in Time,” starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. The hotel holds a convention every October for fans of the cult-classic film.
