Several spirits are said to live at this historic hotel, now open for haunted tours. Among the ghosts are The Jasmine Lady, identified by the whiff of her floral perfume; George, who may have been drowned in the hotel swimming pool around the 1920s; The Drunken Ghost, the artist responsible for the mural in the Crystal Room bar (and died before finishing it); and Cassandra, a little girl who drowned in the pool and likes to play marbles.

    1. My paranormal investigating partner and I, investigated Mineral Springs. There is a green door under the stairs, when we opened the door, a strong surf smell overcame both of us, also there was a mist that formed, that we were able to get a picture of.

      • I live in Alton and there a lot more haunted places. Alton is a VERY historical place. Especially the cemetary. There are AT LEAST a thousand people buried there and a lot of the graves go back to like the 1600s. If you would like to talk to me about it, here is my email: hamilton.grace13@gmail.com

    2. The writer was communicative and really seemed to grasp what I was looking for in my paper provided by studyfy https://www.facebook.com/studyfyservices/. They were open to my suggestions and incorporated all the specific details I needed. The draft they provided was well-researched, clearly written, and thoughtfully argued. It was evident that they put a lot of effort into understanding the topic and my perspective.
