Hotel Crypt

Welcome to The Hotel Crypt, the only attraction of its kind in America — possibly the world. In 1907, Father Wallace, the first priest of St. Patrick’s Church in Lewiston, Maine, was laid to rest in a crypt below the church’s mortuary chapel. Today, except for the addition of furnishings and a few modern comforts, the crypt remains as Father Wallace experienced it until 2009. It is now available to be experienced by novelty-seekers, adventurers, the fearful, the fearless, the believers, and the skeptics for exactly what it is: a creepy, beautiful, spooky, fascinating crypt where Father Wallace’s body decomposed for over 100 years. His body is no longer there, but yours can be.
