Grand Midway Hotel

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Grand Midway Hotel

This historic hotel has been in operation for over a century, but is now believed to be a private residence. The owners have been known to auction the rooms for a night, which is enough for some guests to leave the hotel in fear. Staff have reported a wild apparition known to through chairs, push people around and smash bottles. The apparition is believe to be a man who died in a barfight over a century ago. The apparition of a young woman with curly hair has been seen wandering through the hotel and has been known to speak to guests and staff. She is believed to a prostitute who was walled up on the second floor and left to die. The most haunted room is Room #003, where the statue of a nun has been known to move around of its own accord. It has even been known to appear in people’s dreams and talk to them. The other most haunted place to stay is the ‘Canopy Room’, where a defiant female spirit and cold spots have been observed. The final apparition reported is known as the ‘Professor’, who has been seen reading quietly in an office on the second floor.

  1. I used to go to a store across the street from this place and every time I park my car get out and as of walking to the store from the sidewalk, could feel somebody from that building wanting me to come over and visit. It seemed like a sad girl or young woman that is what I felt but I’ve yet to have the opportunity all the nerve to go in there maybe this year I should give it a try and see what she wants. maybe she needs someone to listen to her story who knows!! I guess I could at least do that for her… When and if I do I’ll let you know…. To be continued!!!!!!
