Gray Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Gray Hotel

This 1912 former hotel now houses the offices of a paranormal investigative team, who claim that the building is one of the most haunted in the entire state. With its troubling past of murder, manslaughter and illegal activity, it isn’t that hard to believe either. At least two, possibly three, homicides have taken place on the premises, including a barber who was buried under the porch and a grocer who was dumped in a field outside the township. Nowadays, it is hard to tell that the refurbished building had such a rough history, but reports of recurring paranormal activity are a constant reminder of this. There are various accounts of visitors encountering a ghostly couple in period clothing, as well as a leering man who has been seen for a split second before he vanishes. Tenants of stores on the ground floor have experienced phenomena such as slamming doors, lights turning on and off, disembodied footsteps, fleeting touches from unseen hands, cold spots, a sense of dizziness and apparitions appearing on the second floor and in the basement. During a recent investigation, a paranormal group encountered a seven year old girl who asked to play with a hula hoop they’d brought along, further adding to this locations already extensive repertoire of spooky tales. The current owners are in the process of creating a ghost tour of the small town, with the hotel being the main focus of the event.

  1. I’ve been inside this building multiple times and the only thing that is scary is the woman who lives there. Self-proclaimed ghost-hunter, witch, palm reader and sensitive all in one. Keep your children a way if you see her coming. She’ll freak them out. Trust me, you’ll know who she is when you see her.

  2. I’ve been to this place in a dream.. There was a man with an old hat. It was a very confusing encounter.. But I knew he was a ghost despite it being a dream.. Something about the steps I don’t know .. Just thought I’d share

  3. that used to be the old huanted hotel bc my dad worked there and he said that there was a room that nobody had the key for and they was not aloud in there and my dad said it slowly started to open right before the next group came in
