Kaskaskia Hotel

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Kaskaskia Hotel

This historic hotel opened in 1916. Locals tell a story of a young woman who committed suicide by jumping from the top floor in the 1920s, but some will tell you she was pushed by her boyfriend. It is said that employees there would hear the click of her heels in the hallways, and the elevator would work by itself. The hotel was closed in 2001 but reports say it is being renovated as a hotel, museum, and convention center.

  1. We stayed here 1999 when we couldn’t get space at Starved Rock Lodge. It was every bit as creepy as the photos suggest—just an odd energy and strangeness, creepy decor. Our kids wouldn’t sleep in their room, and yes we did hear the story of the young woman who died.
