    Shadows Paranormal Investigations arrives in there hometown to help find the truth about the Haunted Read House Hotel and unearth its dark history.

    Opened by loyal individuals during the Civil War under the name of Crutchfield House, this hotel has hosted many important events throughout history. To date, it is said that this hotel contains elements and spirits of both the past, and present, and will host them long into the future!

    Located in the very elegant downtown area in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Read Hotel stands tall among the buildings that it resides with. In the year of 1863, it is reported that this structure served as a hospital for the Union Army. Unfortunately, just a few short years later, in 1867, the structure experienced a fire that would devastate it as a whole as a structure. A man and popular figure at the time, Dr. John T. Read decided to construct a new hotel in the same area where the original met its fate. The new hotel would be constructed in a Gregorian architectural design in the year of 1926. The new, ten story hotel, was built to replicate the original, yet with all of the modern necessities and luxuries.

    Many murders, suicides, and natural types of death has been said to occur within the walls of both the old and the newly constructed Read Hotel. As a result of these situations throughout history, many hauntings have been stated to have occurred in this area. There is one room, in particular, that is said to have the most spooktacular experiences. Many employees and guests that have been exposed to this particular room have stated that they have witnessed paranormal activity in this particular room. The activity ranges from shadowy images in mirrors, to quick glimpses of spirits moving about in the room, and even resting on the bed!

    The death, unfortunately, was not a natural one. While some will say that the he committed suicide, others say that he was murdered by either a male customer or a male friend. Some will say that this female was a prostitute of her time.

    If you are seeking out a haunted hotel that has a long history of exciting supernatural and paranormal events, the Read Hotel in Tennessee is the place to be!
