Julian Gold Rush Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Julian Gold Rush Hotel

The hotel was previously a restaurant in the 1880’s, until it was refurbished and commenced operations as a hotel in 1897. Evidently, its original owners are reluctant to leave, as Albert, with a pipe in his mouth, has been seen in mirrors. In the upstairs rooms, lace doilies and furniture is often found to be rearranged.

  1. I went here with my family. I thought this was not real(the fact that was haunted).When we got there, we felt a really weird vibe, as if something was watching us enter the hotel. My son’s gel in his duffel bag was gone in the morning, but then we found it, it was downstairs in the lobby, under a table completely centered .It freaked us out. Also in the morning everything was positioned differently.

  2. Albert was a freed Missouri slave and with his wife worked hard to be seen as equal and valuable contributions to the community in Julian which they were very much were loved until his death years before his wife (when she died it was ok to integrate that cemetery), when he was buried in the black cemetery up highway 76. If anyone knows where that cemetery is please post. I’m sure he goes back and forth fuming. No doubt you will receive extra hospitality while staying there. They did apparently pride themselves on superb service. Love it. Be grateful.
