This hotel is now abandoned and near total ruin. The ghost of 1800s owner David Mayberry is said to haunt the site. Seeing that he built the hotel for the area’s prospectors and miners, gunfights broke out often here, leading to many deaths. David Mayberry himself was shot but not killed, and his shooting led to schizophrenia. In his unstable mental state, he stabbed his wife to death and burned her body in the fireplace, then drowned their son. Legend has it that you can hear the wife crying at night and hear screaming coming from the bathtub in the basement.
