A tattoo business that moved into the 1891 LaMar Hotel and Horseshoe Bar building reported finding a secret room during remodeling, thought to have been a hiding place for alcohol during the Prohibition. In addition, witnesses reported eerie presences, perfume scents, flickering lights, doors that lock by themselves, footsteps, and strange handprints. A psychic reportedly cleansed the space of the spirits, believed to have been one male and one playful little girl.

  1. Planning on doing an investigation of this location, if still active. I called the first floor buisiness, and they said that they were fine. Waiting on a response from the second and third floors.
