Built in 1925, the Ritz Historical Inn was said to have experienced a fire in its early days which killed several guests. Their ghosts apparently still haunt the premises.
The building was handed over in 2010 to Volunteers of America, and plans are underway to convert the building to housing for homeless veterans.
