Rookwood Speakeasy

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Rookwood Speakeasy

Rookwood Hotel opened in 1912, but by 1950 it had been divided into apartments. In 2004 the building was bought by a new owner who found a hidden speakeasy from Prohibition days behind a bulletproof door in the basement. That year, when a tour guide went down to shut off the speakeasy’s lights and lock up, he experienced a sort of ghostly time warp. He saw two men in 1920s pinstriped suits sitting at a table.

  1. 520 S Washington, butte, Mt. Most haunted place in Montana with apparitions of old man and woman. Voices, walking, man hanging by neck in basement. Babies crying, probably because some were cremated in basement fireplace and buried in basement.

    • What’s the history on the location you referenced? Also is it vacant or do people live there? And how do you know it’s haunted?
      I’m just curious, I find this subject matter to be very fascinating and am always looking for new authentic haunted locations to explore. However, I’m guessing the address you referenced above is a private home. So the likelihood of my being allowed access is highly unlikely.
